My artworks give a sensual experience as well as a visual one. Careful attention to detail, whether in form, surface or shadow is central to my practice and works.
I am attracted to the minutiae found in Nature, especially objects that are often bypassed or go unnoticed. Working closely from found objects so that when up-scaling these into ‘life-size’, I invite the viewer to re-examine their relationship with Nature. Whether we acknowledge it or not I believe nature influences humans, sometimes in very dramatic ways. We are thus drawn to remembering that we too are nature.
