My work

The inspiration for my work comes from nature. The work is celebratory and deals with the reintegration of nature into life and art, and the place of ritual in everyday life.  

It is underpinned by an exploration of spiritual growth and the journey of the soul. I study Tai Chi and for me my work is Tai Chi. I try to be with and to capture energy – the dance of yin/yang, feminine/masculine, receptive/emissive, and vulnerability/strength etc. 
The work is concerned with these issues and influenced by alchemy and the concept of transformation and individuation. It celebrates the vibrancy of life and the natural order of decay and death. It combines natural and manmade materials – wood, bronze, perspex and wire etc – and deals with inside/out, potential/actual and manifested/unmanifested. I hope that my sculptures are like poetry and touch, unfold and inspire each person differently.
