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 considered worthless and thrown away. I am pleased when someone can see something intriguing or beautiful in an item that would usually be destined for landfill by being exposed to the material in a different context. For me, contrasts between dark and light, the broken and the whole, ultimately highlight hope and light.
