’Time To Reflect On A Better World’
“I envisioned this piece by showing the work in two halves, to bottom half being our current state of the world, so busy, so noisy with many industries eating away at the planet. I believe and imagine that after Covid people will have a greater understanding of how to treat their neighbours and the also how to look after the place they call home no matter where they are from and what colour their skin is.”

Rewild: The Art of Returning to Nature

As our busy, technology-driven lives become more sedentary we have become less connected to our natural surroundings. In these challenging times, it is by rediscovering our links to the world around us that we can rekindle the natural, human connection we have to the wild.

My recent work around arts and ecology has focused on the search for utopia through communities who attempt to live in harmony with the earth and other species. As we move through this strange Covid-19 time of mass extinction I feel drawn to put down roots, root out seeds to plant and dig into the soil. The mexican proverb reads: “they tried to bury us.. they didn’t know we were seeds”..in times of oppression it becomes our time to grow, rise up and consciously create the world that we want to see..
