An environmental artist
After more than five years of working with expensive art glass, it came naturally to expand now to a new form of expression, using found glass and subsequently making art out of them. As I work with these objects, I become even more fascinated by the way they can be modified, going beyond the mundane and becoming artworks.
My challenge as an artist is to take these found glass, which might at first have no apparent dialogue, and to work with them until they speak and tell their story. Following that, I would like to send the underlying environmental messages inherent in the use of this kind of medium, and look forward to the possible discussion that these pieces may generate as a result.
Humanity is at a critical point in time, with our planet currently existing in a fragile ecological state, with global warming speeding up, with few changes being made, all amplifying the fact that we need all the help we can get.
Hopefully by making this art, it is a way of sharing my message for the need to care for our environment with a broad audience.
