The cyclical nature of change and evolution is the primary theme that characterises this work. It is manifested in the combination of found objects and circle motifs. I am drawn to surfaces altered in time, such as rusted metal,  geological formations and glass, wood and skeletons washed up on the beach. I love the sense of continuity of what came before and what follows. In the ongoing process of evolution, from mangroves and glaciers to human industry, there is a cyclical and fluid relationship between humans, animals and plants. Sadly, climate change-driven fluctuations in this cycle foreshadow radical change or revolution.
