Ethos and Sustainability
I care deeply about the natural world and am grateful for the inspiration it gives me. I'm very eco-conscious and do my best to work ethically and consider the environment wherever and however I can:
Products used are chosen for their minimal use of plastic and harmful chemicals. I use non-toxic, water based paints for my murals
Wherever possible I follow the mantra “Reduce, Re-use, Recycle”
When I need to buy new materials I try to buy sustainably, locally and second hand. If I have to buy new then I do what I can to buy products made from recycled materials, e.g. my paint tray and roller brush are made from recycled materials
Work clothing is made from recycled materials and printed locally using eco solvent products
Supporting local charities and community projects is a large part of my business and personal life. I believe art can lift the spirits and improve mental health.
During lockdown I set up a pop up pantry to help elderly neighbours and have donated part of my commission earnings to a food bank and a children’s hospice. At weekends my time is spent indulging my passion for the environment and nature by planting trees with charity organisation Moor Trees or doing local litter picking & beach cleans with my family.
Choosing a mural instead of a sign or decal sticker is a more sustainable, environmentally friendly option. As well as using less plastic, commissioning a mural will reduce your carbon footprint at the same time as supporting a local business!
