Drawing is how I make my subconscious visible.

I have always experienced a closeness with other species and have been unable to believe the hierarchy and separation I was taught between humans and other animals. I don’t observe the supposed difference in degrees of intelligence, I observe different types of intelligence. Animals have their own thoughts and lives. We can’t know what their experience of life is. I like to explore what it could be like to be other species, or what relationship humans could have with animals that they don’t have now.
