Painted on recycled drum heads, known as drum 'skins', these works explore my desire as an artist to reduce my environmental footprint over the course of my lifetime. How does my passion impact the world around me, the ecosystems of endangered species, for instance. 

As the drumbeat toward extinction grows ever louder, I am reminded of the exquisite form of these creatures and seek to elevate them through my use of colour and pattern layering. Their curious charm and alternative piercings, whimsical environments and soulful gazes reflects on my belonging to various creative communities in Australia.
