Concepts I am currently developing ideas about humankind's interaction with its environment and the position an artist takes in a technologically advanced, culturally-rich society. I am interested in art made by 'non-professionals' who react to an uninitiated desire to make images and objects. Some of my work uses this kind of instinct, for example 'Idea For When I Retire'. I also address more directly specific themes concerning the environment in work such as 'Egg Collection' and something to remind me of where I come from.
