Scientific studies are currently focusing less on the possibility and more on the certainty and speed with which climate change is taking place.

My practice is not obviously engaged with worldly issues, working directly to transform the global scale of climate change into a human narrative. But more to have it subtly resonate within my work.

Subject matters are introduced as key elements that make up the natural world – water, stars, ice and snow. But underlying are the activities that affect the planet’s fragile equilibrium.

While the grandeur of the subject matter is apparent, so too is its vulnerability

I continue to explore moments of transition and turbulence in the landscape. I choose to show the beauty rather than the devastation, a celebration of what we stand to lose.
