Body of Work  "Landfill"

During the summer of 2016 I was the artist in residence at the Haliburton School of Art + Design. For this residency I worked with the school and the local landfill to create several works of art to show the effect of the landfill on the environment.

While spending time at the landfill I was amazed at the amount of waste we produce. I brought home with me a sense that I needed to continue using this theme in my art -  working with discarded objects to bring awareness to the public of the amount of waste our society is producing.
