"This image was made for a United Nations calendar, the subject was Climate Change. I depicted a mother and child wearing gas masks with the umbilical cord linking them. Although this is a sad, disturbing image, I wanted the image to be brightly-colored and almost cheerful on first glance, as this would most likely be seen hanging on a wall. I sometimes like to give serious subjects a cheerful surface to draw the viewer in. The imagery surrounding the figures is of abstract shapes, some look like flowers and clouds, but they could also be seen as toxic clouds and growths."
