My work is about following each piece and being intuitively
open to an unspoken dialogue that spans a breath of choices and unknown exit
points. My interest in memory is the makings of the complexities of a souvenir.
The moments captured with an object that creates a personal language. For me
being an artist is an act of prosaic looking that feeds
making for heterogeneous artefacts that confront
the real world, curated by movement of life that allows the work to be
witnessed in challenging surroundings. I see my work as an anthology of
objects, each being a unique incomplete tangible question that collects
personal provenance. What stimulates my work and research is the ongoing amassments
of stuff I collect and own. Obsessions happen without acknowledgement and my
inventory shows no boundaries to objects, just an attraction that I find it
hard to explain other than: we find each-other.

Star-gazing are a limited set of pins that respond from an incomplete act. I was craving the self indulgence to paint the stars all night while the air was crisp and densely perfumed.

I gazed… all I wanted to use was black and silver to which watercolour can not birth; so I gazed all night, come morning came the pins…
Skimming beauty is a body of work that combines two fragment memories to convey and even broken whole.

Ever made a wish by skimming a chosen pebble along the seas surface?

Have you ever loved something that has crudely been mended or altered?

Did any of theses wishes come true?

Does no one else see the beauty in the mended broken?
