Creating environment-conscious art

I believe that we are called to be good stewards of all the earth’s resources, whether natural or man-made. Figuring out how to translate this into my practice is an ongoing journey. It starts with being aware of the impact of my work materials and processes on the environment and the willingness to continue to experiment and do things differently, weighing up the pros and cons of different options.

 

In an attempt to create more eco-friendly pieces, I like to incorporate natural and man-made materials that are often thrown away. I am pleased when someone can see something intriguing or beautiful in an item that would otherwise be destined for landfill.

 

For me, contrasts between dark and light, the broken and the whole, ultimately highlight hope and light.

I have always loved to experiment, so relish the challenge of finding environment-friendly alternatives for paints and materials.
