British Colombia on the West Coast of Canada is a kingdom of natural beauty, lush verdant forests co-exist side by side with ever expanding modern cities, as both vie for air and space. It is easy to see the encroachment of lands once reserved for nature and animals. From the city of Vancouver one can plainly see the vast deforestation of the surrounding mountains, with the disappearance of the trees, the natural habitat of birds and animals is gone, probably forever.
As we encroach upon nature's world we can expect that nature will have no other recourse than to encroach more and more on the city.
The visual reminders of deforestation and encroachment are always present in my daily life, impacting my art making process, recycling materials in my studio is a large part of my practice.
