'Tea' inspiration behind the artwork
What surrounds you that you're yet to appreciate or harness?
Confronted daily by single use items and mountains of waste destined for landfill, creating works of art from used tea bags started as a playful challenge, taking the ugliest rubbish bin pieces and finding new life for them.
Patented in 1904 the first tea bag changed the way the product was sampled, sold, brewed and shared. Through my art practice I aim to inspire the viewer to look at everyday objects from a different angle and challenge ones perspective of life itself.
How else can you experience and enjoy life today?
