Description

The loss of childhood brings the distance and lack of familiarity between human and animal, and all love and compassion is thrown out the window. Animals no longer surround us in soft, harmonious images brought by toys and books, but disappear completely. Through my art I rekindle this relationship between humans and animals, renewing what is meant to be felt between the two. I draw to say what animals cannot say themselves, not aiming to instill fear or guilt, but to draw out the empathy that once swarmed human’s hearts for such wonderful creatures.
