My body of work was inspired by a bushwalk where I spotted litter scattered along the track. My intent in representing these things that were left behind is to expose how we regard these items as insignificant. I used a small scale in my work to express how little thought people give to the items they discard in contrast with the huge impact this litter has on our environment.
