ARTIST STATEMENT

Sewstainability

My current work considers, and is inspired by, sustainable practice in orderto help raise
awareness about the amount of plastic and materials we waste in daily life. My work uses
discarded materials to create art that addresses environmental changes and consumerism,
while celebrating the needs and joy of nature.
The works in this exhibition are produced by sewing recycled materials, such as discarded
plastics, packages, recycled wood and fabric together to produce 2D wall pieces reminiscent
of maps. The reproduced Google satellite images are places where I have lived, and where the
effects of development and climate change are evident. This series of work is a reflection of
the value of finding balance and living well on a daily basis.
