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.

For me being an artist is an act of prosaic looking that feeds making for heterogeneous artefacts that confront the real world. 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.

working drawings


So, a few people have contacted me asking about drawing. How important is it to my making? How do I use it within my practice? I have chosen very resent drawings to illustrate this. I tend not to overthink the act of drawing and use it to document thinking. My mark-making ranges from very quick lines to a build-up of collage surfaces. I add text a lot as instruction and annotation of material. I see my drawings as key points of developments as a process of planning thoughts and material investigations. I do not limit myself to a type of media and papers and surfaces are important for the translation of ideas. I usually work on loose pages so I can pin them in my work space then collect them to form a sketchbook.

Personal Provenance

a project revisiting turning points of my creativity. making pieces that can act as collectors, adding and amassing sentimental objects. questioning ownership and transition of making and the importance of nominating from personal archives.

experimental casting
badges to collect. as part of kits...

Bygone Stones

Bygone Stones are made to sit on your body as part of a treatment at different temperatures. to aid meditation and points of deep personal inquest.
