I am an artist, illustrator and activist. My work explores how we value nature in the 21st century through drawing, walking, workshops and talks. Through this multidisciplinary approach I can investigate what nature is, and express it to the public in innovative ways.

 

Growing up in Hayes, Bromley, on the border of London’s Green Belt, my childhood was spent in the edgelands, neither rural nor urban. This in-between space has given me an appreciation of what nature and wilderness offers through its absence in the city, while also being aware of the pace, need and expanse of concrete. This juxtaposition between the green and the grey has shaped my practice. My work reflects on how the boundaries that define the edge of the city can inform one another to not only advocate for nature, but also to challenge how perceptions of value destroy the wild while not benefiting the people.

 

By combining these tools for seeing nature, I hope to create work that allows people to follow me into the natural world through conversations rather than didacticism.
