I make art essentially through playful interaction with materials, experiences and feelings. The ambiguity of this process can be fraught with challenges but can also be exciting, as the resulting work is often something I never could have imagined.
From working with the simplicity of pencil on paper to constructing with materials either man made or natural – making art is a joy. It’s how I express my thoughts and feelings about the experience of life, the world around us and its happenings.
What I see, touch, taste, hear, smell and feel are my resource bank – that’s what I tap into and explore through art making.
