Artist statement

I believe that the excitement in a material is built from the motion of the subconscious mind. Materials which have been used to their full potential are what interest me, as I like to restore and bring back to life a character from within the property of the surface. I find myself building an intense relationship with the particular surface I am working with, this ignites themes such as elements of chance, unknown processes, a skin like layering and topology, all which enhance my work. A playful journey emerges where collaboration between artist, material and process unfolds, for me this is also when you convert, transform and materialize a new beginning from what was seen previous. For me painting and sculpture go hand in hand, they feed off one another.
