This body of work is based on the beauty that I see in the animals we accidentally and intentionally kill. The use of the actual animal in the work refers to both the previous existence of the material and the transformation the material has undergone in my hands (a metaphor for the transformation of the wild into a human-altered world). The animals I use are roadkill or have died due to some other human cause. No animals are ever killed for the purpose of inclusion in my work.
