“My work is a visual commentary around the ideas of ecology and our ever-changing world,” the artist says. “I am fascinated by how the human footprint is affecting our planet. Our world is full of wonderful landscapes and I wish to highlight the continual damage caused through things such as deforestation, the politics of energy consumption, and endangered wild species. I am a traditional printmaker, painter and sculptor with modern twist; I work with mostly woodcarving, linocut, etching, and oil”
