Description:

Artist's statement:
"My work is a visual commentary around the ideas of ecology and our ever-changing world. I am fascinated by how the human footprint is affecting our planet.
Our world is full of wonderful landscapes and I wish to highlight the continual damage caused through things such as deforestation, the politics of energy consumption, and endangered wild species.
I am a traditional printmaker, painter and sculptor with a modern twist; I work with mostly woodcarving, linocut, etching, and oil. I combine my African cultural roots with the British culture, producing work that makes people reflect on the past, present and the future."
