RUNOFF: Pollution of the body in the form of sludge passing through the roller coaster duodenum held together with a mesenteric scaffold. Symbolizes the toxic ingestion of chemicals with the toxic runoff in natural streams and rivers. Both pollute the soul.

X-RAYS OF THE SOUL: A collection of powerful black and white abstract expressionistic paintings inspired by the importance of species conservation and my love for science, these paintings symbolize the intimate relationship we have with the natural world by using anatomical images that demonstrate our connection with nature. My studies in veterinary medicine and love for science and the natural world inspired the creation of narrative showing the inescapable connection between humankind and the natural world. Powerful, black and white images seem like “x-rays of the soul” showing magnified and distorted images of internal human anatomy that mirror the external natural world.
