“I am interested in the relationships between surfaces, between image and object, inside and outside, mental and physical spaces. Also the mark left by the hand, like memory held by the material, a physical record of self.

My approach to creating is to move between intuitive and playful, and controlled; an oscillation between conscious and unconscious making, to allow the unknown to enter into the making process. There is always a negotiation between material and maker, as I choose materials that partly direct the making through their fluid and relatively unpredictable nature.”
