Art with an emphasis on creating a fresh understanding and interaction with nature has been a strong feature of my work over the last few years and I definitely expect it to continue. Schools are increasingly seeing the benefits of using their outdoor space as a second classroom, and many diverse community groups are wanting to maximise the environmental possibilities on their doorstep. Principal features include the use of recycled, green materials, and creating environments for wildlife to flourish, such as mini-beast hotels, bird tables, aquatic features.
