Nothing is more beautiful than the natural world, which is perhaps why I cannot bring myself to paint it; my work will never live up to the original. This said, I think there is a whole world to be tapped into of depicting the relationship between humans and our environment. Less romantic, surely, but there is nothing romantic about climate change. Nature is not just pretty, it is real. In painting nature as I see it everyday, I hope others can see it as an active, driving force in our lives.
