Developing my own methodology and work practise based on conceptual ideas around the polarisation of humankinds relationship with nature . My love of Nature and landscape lead me to confront issues of the environment. Recycling plays an important role in my methodology and work practise, reflecting nature’s evolutional processes, Based on conceptual ideas around the polarisation of humankind’s relationship with nature, I work in nature with nature and try to create a dialogue between myself and the natural environment.
My works generally come under the theme of A Sense of Place, often very different places.
