Interdisciplinary environmental artist: inform, inspire, influence.

Art is the language I use to express a feeling, an idea, a narrative, it's the way I navigate the world.

The work comes about via research, experimentation and solitary conversations I have with myself, ultimately I hope the dialogue extends to others.

It's important for the work to have layers of meaning, often the objects used or created are metaphorical but they also have an aesthetic appeal. The viewer doesn’t have to understand it all at first glance but at second and third glance others levels may be revealed.

I don’t really think of myself as an activist. I’m quite an introvert but I do care about the environment and climate crisis deeply and obviously its impact for this and the next generation.

My work often focuses on the upward trajectory of climate change graphs. We need scientific data but an artwork can communicate in ways that arouses curiosity, conversation and action.
