statement:

I have always viewed my art practice as a creative producer and curator of ideas. I enjoy collaborating with non-artists in helping bring their stories to life. Since studying science I have become very passionate about helping to communicate the role that ecological agriculture will play in building healthy soils and landscapes and reshaping our food system.
