Green Tease Members Database

This database is for members of the Green Tease network. It lists people working in the arts who want to engage with environmental issues as well as people working in sustainability who want to connect with artists and those who straddle this divide entirely. Our aim is that it will provide a useful resource to facilitate communicate between artists and sustainability practitioners, making it easier for people to get in touch and find ways of working together.

If you are interested in joining the database then please sign up by filling out this survey.

My work looks at the natural world and geological time in relation to changing environments. I am interested in how we can draw inspiration from the natural world for a more sustainable future, creating closed cycles of resource management, more durable, adaptable built environments, and stronger, more sustainable self-sufficient communities that work together, on a local and global basis, as we face increasing environmental and socio-political challenges. I document changing environments, through photography, sculpture, illustration and installation. My sculptures highlight the bare frameworks of dynamic natural forms, examples of resilience, strength and longevity in their simplest form, and interdependent systems that support life.
