We are guardians and creators
What we notice we care about
What we dream we create
My art has been described as ‘symbolist’ and ranges through modern botanical art, food painting, nature art; climate action & environmental activism.
My interest is in re-inspiring our innate awe & wonder for nature; Exploring our interconnected kinship with all the beings of our world; Healing the way we view & treat the world as only dead resources for extraction; Reinstating in our everyday view the aliveness of the world and our role as guardians; Reconnecting us with a sense of place.
I take a meditative, slow looking approach (with a dash of playfulness!) to inspire people to reconnect with the natural world around them; to become sensitive to & aware of other ways of being; to tune in to our interconnectedness.
Our world is filled with wonder.
We can choose to work together or tear each other apart.

If we are to make the shift from an industrial growth society to a life-sustaining society there are three spheres of action.
Holding actions. These activities include all the political, legislative, and legal work required to reduce the destruction, as well as direct actions-blockades, boycotts, civil disobedience, and other forms of refusal. Work of this kind buys time.
Creation of structural alternatives, the new way of doing things and organising. New ways of growing food, of measuring prosperity, new forms of education.
But these new structures cannot take root and survive unless they are deeply rooted in our values; in our belief in what is worthwhile; in our assumptions about the nature of reality. You can call this a shift in consciousness. – Joanna Macy
It is in this third sphere of action that my work belongs. To heal the separation between nature and humans. To open us up to new ways of perceiving the world.
