The main drive behind my practice is to create work that functions as a form of activism for the vegan-feminist movement. Instead of using violent images to force Veganism down the viewer’s throat, I attempt to elicit change with engaging images. The painting, Pollinate, focuses on the decline in bee populations and how this will impact our planet; the pomegranate and its blossom could not exist without bees. The pomegranate also embodies female sexuality as it symbolises fertility in the Bible and ancient Greek mythology, tying the links between feminism and Veganism.
