Fantasia SeriesBeing surrounded by amazing beauty on the North Coast – my garden, our environment and my family, our community; I was (and still am) alarmed with the ugliness that our waste creates.
I needed to visually express the importance for 'us' as individuals and 'we' as a collective, to take responsibility for managing waste in both our environmental and our social worlds.
I want my art to inspire simple thought – we can reduce, reuse and recycle – we can think and create beauty from our waste. It's important to be responsible but it's necessary to keep it fun.
