Nature Inspired Sculpture


A glimpse into my Mixed Media Sculptures; Blossom, Corolla, Petals & Thistle. Materials used: Painted Papers, Acrylic & Crocheted Stainless Steel Wire.

"I create environmental, mixed media sculptures. My observations of nature have triggered a profound admiration for its brilliance, resilience and its vulnerability. With each project I strive to create a sense of wonder; enticing the viewer to turn that vision outwards into the natural world, nurturing an understanding of that interconnection and encouraging reflection about our relationship with the environment."
