Name: Jacqui Jones

We are living in the Anthropocene era, a time when the actions of humans are affecting the planet in pivotal ways. As a graduate multi-media artist, I am committed to using art as a platform to inform and contribute to the environmental debate. My concern about climate change began in 2011 when I began a research project looking at the creative potential of biodegradable plastics. Working with bio-renewables was a fundamental period and from then on my work has focussed on environmental issues, in particular the climate crisis and single-use plastics.

I have combined research with a skillset that includes film, photography and sculpture to produce a large body of mixed media artwork that can be seen not only at exhibitions but at environmental festivals, conferences and symposiums. Immersed in current social, political and scientific thinking I have a wide portfolio of work, the aim of which is to encourage thought, conversation and action.
