I am a mixed media artist concerned about our environment, creating and representing natural forms through a synthetic lens. Themes in my work straddle the realms of farming, fashion, and the natural world, while playing with ideas of decoration, beauty, sensuality and questions regarding the handmade versus the mass produced. My work depicts the common and often ignored forms of weeds, wild flowers and vegetables; recently, pollinators and other beneficial insects have crept into the work, creating a two-dimensional insectarium that depicts the interconnection of species, the fragility of our ecosystems, as well as a reverence for nature and all its inhabitants. By considering these commonplace forms in a new and unusual way, I hope to arouse a sense of wonder, appreciation, and concern for the environment, as well as the urgent need for a sustainable living planet.
