Food Waste Infographic

I really enjoyed doing these water colour illustrations for the food waste infographic. Being aware of how our actions impact the environment is something I'm really passionate about and I hope we can all be more conscious of how our every day behaviours make a profound impact on our planet.

So she spent a couple weeks searching for places, she really wanted a garden, I really wanted a space to do my art workshops, it also had to be pet friendly.
