Artworks

All my work considers mankind’s impact on the planet and how it has defined our current epoch which is suggested to be called the Anthropocene - the age of mankind.

Depictions of the city can be seen throughout my work. I use it as a metaphor for everything humans have had an impact on. Farmland, fishing, reservoirs, managed forests, mines or pollution - there is almost nowhere on Earth that has not seen some level of impact by civilization. Even uninhabited places are being negatively affected by pollution and global heating.

While these concerns drive my work - the pieces themselves convey a sense of beauty and hope. It shows the symbiotic relationship between the natural world and our built environments. It reminds people that adapting our lifestyles to be more sustainable is not just about giving up luxuries and cutting back - it is about preserving and restoring incredible beauty all around us.
