Biography

While the work has evolved to be inspired by the material itself, in the background is a continuing influence by an early fascination with abandoned, derelict spaces and the beauty found within the physical layers of history these spaces manifest. The work is loosely concerned with capturing this emotive response through the use of enclosed space and form. More important though is the process of making itself, each piece has a theme, yet is completely individual. The use of tools, colour, print and texture become individual to each object. Intuitively making decisions when thinking about joins, edges, scale, balance, and composition, I also incorporate outside influences in the form of colour and texture.
