I am an environmentally focused abstract painter. I work primarily with handmade watercolours sourced from natural earth pigments. The central purpose of my work is to raise awareness of our delicate natural landscapes and the ever-worsening climate crisis. I use sustainable and eco-conscious methods in my practice to highlight overconsumption and careless consumerism. The physicality of paint making with earth pigments forges a deep-rooted connection to the materials I use, both from urban and rural settings.
Although my paintings are subtle in their appearance, they examine big topics. Climate change, sustainability, ecology and our food systems are the main motivations behind my work. Researching and staying informed on these topics allows me to challenge our ingrained patterns and behaviours through my paintings.
