The series I’ve been working on over the last 7 years is called “Intrusion”, it is an exploration, either in gouache for smaller works or oil for larger pieces, of our relationship to the planet and ultimately with ourselves. The series most often asks the question, “Who is intruding on whom?” Initially, the work implied a post-apocalyptic world where animals reclaimed their now unnatural habitats, but it has since grown into more allegorical narratives of the human condition.

I’ve tapped into my extensive experiences as a graphic designer, illustrator and, plein air painter to address stories that are important to me. After my years participating in plein air events, I knew that I wanted to do more editorial work and sought out a narrative that was authentic to me. My love for the environment lead the way. The pieces often present scenarios that are possible but, not plausible, depictions of animals in abandoned spaces. I’ve followed the work rather than directing it and have ventured into animals invading abstract backgrounds which is a nod to my graphic design days.
