SUSTAINABLE ART

 

REUSE   RECYLCE   REDUCE

 

Over the years I have established a network of people who earn an extra income through searching, sourcing and sorting these beautiful specimens of wood which are either dug up as dead tree roots, picked up as found wood in forests or found along riverines and swamps as driftwood. These pieces of wood are hundreds of years old. I, therefore, find my inspiration in the character that comes through erosion and ageing. I believe my work is to just 'complete' or 'finish' off what nature would have sculpted over those years. My material comes from all over Southern Africa mainly Zimbabwe, Namibia, Malawi and South Africa.

 

VALUES 

 

I strive to honor God by being a diligent steward of his resources; time, money and people.

Harmony – I constantly seek harmony with nature and the green environment through applying eco – friendly principles in my work.
