'''This project explores biomorphism in wearable art and costume. I am interested in the relationship between humans and the environment so have tried to demonstrate this by combining the two. I use a range of recycled materials on and around the body to mirror the pattern, texture and colour of living organisms, whilst also photographing my pieces in different natural locations.

A common theme in my work is to cover the face that in turn leads to the figure remaining anonymous. I originally chose to do this in order to portray that humans are hiding away from the damaging effects they are causing the environment, their guilt is left buried behind these masks. The planet needs protection and by producing works that cover the head, simulating a helmet, I hope to illustrate this. The isolation that is shown when wearing these pieces demonstrates the sensation of being 'at one with nature' and hopefully triggers people to think about their connection with the environment, as well as their actions.’’
