My practice focuses on current global issues, specifically on sustainability and growing urban populations. I use re-cycled and biodegradable materials to shed a light on ideas surrounding over consumption and waste. I often produce large-scale conceptual sculptures, which can lead to design outcomes. This allows me to develop interior design pieces that are concept lead. I construct my sculptures out of units, building up to create something complex out of something simple. Through this way of working I am able to use unlikely, materials to create innovative, beautiful pieces that are unrecognisable as waste.
