After being vegetarian for six years, I have recently turned vegan. have always liked to explore contemporary subjects in the news today. I have created work in the past that has created awareness of society, religion, and now, ‘veganism’. My work explores the meat industry, the dairy industry and the egg industry (factory farming). I have also been focusing on honey, as many people don’t know that honey is not vegan and how it is cruel to the bees. Veganism is a subject is something I am completely passionate about, I don’t think enough people know the suffering animals have to endure.
My artwork consists of collages with sarcastic slogans, inspired by Barbara Kruger, and small hand-made books which discuss the story of the animals suffering in factory farms with the audience. I use watercolour and a fine liner to create images in my books. As a female and a feminist, I feel it is important to highlight the suffering of the female animals in factory farming. I think artwork about these topics should have a light side, maybe a small amount of humour to get people to view it with an open mind. However, it will still show viewers what is going on in the animal agriculture system and hopefully make them think about eating a burger, or drinking a glass of milk.
