“As we become more aware of our impact on the world we are faced with a dilemma, how do we balance a modern way of living while doing as little harm possible to the environment around us […] I try to be very conscious of my practices and impact as a human and artist. In my personal studio I work outside, this eliminates the need for ventilation systems and lighting while bringing me inspiration and happiness. Many of my tools were acquired second hand and my bench made of reclaimed materials.”
