Images created considering the destruction of the rainforest for consumer goods by companies such as Nestlé.

An oil painting created considering the degradation of the River Wye and general bodies of water by pollutants and plastic. I created this during lockdown when working as a support worker and using PPE everyday, which was of course essential but at the same time felt wrong to use when I know that environmental neglect only serves to contribute towards pandemics.

This period of time left a difficult question in my mind of where the balance lies between protecting the lives of the vulnerable and protecting the earth.
