Artist statement:

The amount of plastic that enters the oceans on a daily basis is a staggering statistic. It can seem like an impossible task. I grew up in the coastal south and became all too familiar with what is left in the wake of a people carving an existence in a fragile ecosystem. These plastics are a byproduct of our increasing convenience-based lives.

There is a dark comedy in seeing the ways nature attempts to make use of our carelessness. I made this painting referencing some of the different juxtapositions I've seen on our coastlines. Resourceful shorebirds making homes from the endless debris that washes ashore. While there is something endearing about how nature overcomes and adapts to how we've shaped the world, it also serves as a reminder that our abundant use of plastics reach farther than we can imagine.
