For the past fourteen years I have been creating site specific art installations and sculptures on waterways, from chalk fed rivers, New Forest streams, salt marshes, urban canals, and the inshore waters of the Solent and the English Channel, raising awareness about issues affecting water; pollution, flooding, global warming and plastic marine pollution.
The sculptures I create use waste materials which are collected re used, recyled and up cycled. 'Jellytastic' for the Wildlife Trusts used plastic bottles collected by the public and these were transformed into a huge, suspended jellyfish sculpture which toured round the English South coast during Summer 2014.

"Jellytastic’ was very much a highlight of the ONCA Gallery programme in 2014 with visitor numbers higher than usual. It was a fantastic project in terms of community engagement and raising awareness about the fascinating marine life in our oceans and seas, as well as getting people thinking about plastic marine pollution and the amount of plastic we consume on a daily basis."
