“We need to take this to the individual. We have to include the individual in the belief we can do this together.”
Marshall, like many of us, is extremely concerned about climate change. In his work he endeavours to create art in the most sustainable way he can, choosing to use natural materials which have the least impact on the environment while still producing art that you can enjoy in your home.

He will soon present the initial plans for this large-scale multimedia project. In the meantime, here are some of the ideas he has been exploring on the path towards his major new work.
