Wet~lands

Artistic expression about nature can be far more than an escape from human-centred reality. It can make a pressing commentary on the state of our planet, the politics and policies that shape public debate about our environment, and the questions we need to confront.

My intention is to contribute to this rise in interest and to spark new conversations, by bringing the landscape to life through my work.
After a career in science and science publishing, and as a biologist I bring a distinctly different perspective to ‘nature’ for inspiration.

Wet~lands is a body of work that integrates ‘landscape’ with ‘environment’ in two series of abstract expressive paintings, and a series of drawings using mud collected at different wetland sites. These paintings and drawings place the viewer directly in contact with the colours and textures of wetlands, where land meets water.

Wetlands are positioned at the front line globally, as rising water levels change the status quo.
