‘My work is free flowing of simple form, I believe that it should evolve from the here and now from the initial idea to completion. I may have an idea about what I am going to create, beyond this my mind is kept open and receptive to changes that evolve along the way, on occasions it may take a different path than intended.
This method allows me freedom as I work, often an unexpected change happens for a reason and should be embraced, this is a major part of the creative process and for me the difference between freedom of expression and constraint.
Wood, mixed media, texture, form and colour feature in my work which is influenced by Far Eastern philosophies, cultures as well as the natural forms and textures found in nature.
Currently I am exploring deeper the use of texture within my work as well as using the lathe as a part process for sculpture.’
