'As an artist I try to make work that resonates. I make art about things that matter to me and challenge my mind.' I work a 'clean art studio' with a minimal environmental footprint, using water based paints, sustainable materials and clean solvents. Visual art can be a very chemical driven profession, often with little compromise on materials. I think artists need to rethink working methods.
