In my work I focus on human-animal relationships and human impact on the environment. I create wearable animal heads which are worn for performances that are used in film, and in most of these pieces I am the performer.

I create my animal heads using foam, faux fur, and clay. I add as much detail as possible to these heads so they stand out alone as sculptural pieces, and look more alive when being worn by a performer. These heads are usually of animals which are endangered or extinct because of human activity like hunting.

With this work I highlight issues such as human contribution to habitat destruction which is leading to the endangerment of many species, and other similar topics, using my animal heads in film to tell a story and humanize these animals.
