The deliberate anthropogenic rape of our environment has led us to a precipice we may not return from without genuine and coherent planning to reverse our blind greed. As an artist I contribute to awareness and change by taking an ideological premise to my work situating my creative oeuvre as political and symbolic acts, deliberately strong and provoking, not allowing easy access and sentiment.

Another common thread throughout my oeuvre is the reliance on found, recycled, reinvented ideas and media.

This work originated with the use of scrap tiles offcuts and broken plaster cast.
