My work is created using recycled materials that are traditionally considered throwaway waste items. I like to think I am breathing new life into these materials as well as in a small way reducing landfill. Also I see this as my sort of humour that hanging on your wall could be looked at as 'rubbish' depending on how you choose to view it.

All my work is protected with a layer of UV varnish. It is advised for further protection they be hung out of direct sunlight or opposite windows.
