Artist’s Statement: The optimism of nature is persistent and unchanging. Limbs are extended by humans in an attempt to be helpful. Exploring the ideas of biocentrism rather than anthropocentrism is a path that will assist nature best.

Artist’s Statement: Awake from a long absent-minded dream, the species that we call humans take conscious steps back to join the web of nature.
Artist’s Bio: Brett was born and raised in South Africa and has always been connected with nature, particularly the African bush and the Southern African coastlines, which have defined and guided the eco-modern style of the artist. Most important to him are the protection of natural environments and the promotion of bio-diversity. Through his art, Brett strives to bring this message forth to people interested in his unique, sustainable design solutions. If Brett is not in his studio designing or educating on the importance of stewardship, you will most likely find him surfing in San Diego’s north county, doing yoga, shaping a surfboard or in search of discarded waste that fills our natural environments.
