I explored ecosystems and evolution wanting to convey the chaos of predator versus prey in the fight for survival. My work shows the tipping point between life and death, success and failure. My inspiration has always been the natural world. Influenced by James Cameron’s Avatar, I explored the adaptations animals have made to suit their environment. I used a skewed horizon and crowded composition to achieve a sense of off-balance and turmoil.
