In the past my work was inspired by my collection of natural objects, but over the last few years I have transitioned to collecting plastics, almost exclusively.
Living beside the sea it is hard to ignore the awfulness of plastic pollution. It’s relentlessness. As long as the waves roll in, so will the plastic. This unsolicited companionship.
And so I pick it up, take it home, sort it by colour, size or shape. Create in a way that will maybe give reason to pause, awaken thought and spark conversation. In short, to create awareness of this devastating crisis that threatens our world.
