Our landfills are filling up and polluting more and more of our soil, water and air. Our marine life are being destroyed by all the plastic in the ocean, and we keep using non-degradable items like food packaging in our lives on a daily basis.

Increasingly I am using so-called waste in my studio and home, and collaborating with businesses like Ballo to find new interesting ways to create a more cyclical structure in our consumer world.
