Statement

From heads to the figure to form and function, I create pieces which intrigue me.

My interest in perception and reality has been a major influence in my work for quite some time. I frequently use the head as a vehicle for exploring issues surrounding our uniqueness and individuality.

I am also interested in the way our experiences shape our way of thinking and dealing with the world around us. I incorporate various methods to explore how our experiences affect ways of seeing and interpreting the world.

I love form, function and materials and 'make' simply for the pleasure of sculpting, creating and challenging myself. It is a personal journey, as it is for us all.
