'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 weight, mood, and silence these spaces bring. 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 along the way, joins, edges, scale, balance, composition, while incorporating outside influences in the form of colour and texture.'
