Like everyone else I have a relationship with nature that started out as curiosity and evolved into one of respect, amazement and fear, but now I confess to being a little obsessed with animals.
I regularly try to imagine what sorts of lives they are leading, from slime mould to blue whales. This is probably evident in my art and I have a lot of fun with it. But now my thoughts about the natural world are shifting from wonder to concern.
Many of these creatures will pass out of existence if we humans stay the present course. Art for me has become a means of encouraging people to think more about the natural world as well as a way of paying tribute to the wonderful gift that is life!
