Statement

By deliberately confining my practice to the use of man made materials ( which shouldn’t be on beaches and constitute a pollution hazard to marine wildlife ) I’m making an obvious environmental statement and commenting on the way we live now. Working with these materials involves getting outside and going looking for them on a beach, good exercise for kids. Learning not to see “ a problem “ which some one should do something about but instead see “ free materials “which can be used imaginatively and creatively ( problem solving ). Having been shown the above then hopefully children can and will want to not partake in such an unsustainable lifestyle and hopefully try to prompt parents in that direction. They may even be prompted to join community beach cleaning groups.
