2016 was an unusually cloudy and wet dry season. I began documenting the cloudy days from June to August by taking photographs and I did the same last year. The 2017 dry season was the warmest on record.


These drawings are made using recycled photocopy toner.

The composition of photocopy toner is generally 60% heat-sensitive micro-plastic particles and the rest is iron oxide and pigment.


Clouds; beautiful, cottony, floating arrangements of water molecules. Cumulus clouds are the product of heat and convective air-mass instability that grow upward to form rain.

Water vapour has a strong effect on weather and climate. As the planet gets warmer, more water evaporates from the earth’s surface and becomes vapour in the atmosphere. Water vapour is a greenhouse gas, so more water vapour leads to even more warming. A hotter atmosphere is able to take up and retain more moisture – every degree of warming results in and average 1% increase in rainfall.


We are turning the natural world against itself and us!

As Tim Flannery says; ‘We are now the weather makers.’

The human impact on the natural world is central to my work and my materials always carry an intrinsic message……………………….an armature for ideas.
