“The natural world is full of often overlooked or forgotten beauty. Through my artwork, I aim to draw attention to the textures and beautiful shapes found in Flora & Wildlife. I want the sculptures I create to remind people of the vast beauty of nature and to reconnect with their own surroundings. Only we as humans can question our own attitudes and behaviour towards the natural environment.” 2021
