My drawings look at mankind’s impact on the planet and the symbiotic relationship between natural and man made environments.
Each drawing is a painstakingly created map, some involving hundreds of hours of work. The results are mesmerising and highly intricate artworks that from a distance look like organic shapes, but on closer inspection reveal themselves to be familiar patterns of roads and buildings. While beautiful and mesmerising the drawings also make you think about the impact our cities and lifestyles have on the planet.
