Interdisciplinary in nature, my practice employs a wide range of media. I’m not tied to any one discipline. In fact, my practice requires me to explore new and combined methods, thus discovering conclusions relevant to the work I wish to explore.

In my work I often collaborate with other artists and with the general public. I look for technical assistance when I need it, as my ideas can sometimes be complicated and require expertise I do not have. Yet, often, in other work, such as the drawing show ‘I smile at Life’ I have worked on my own, with my own demons.

The surrounds that I find myself in, have always been part of my process, it enables me to select what I see, it is the centre point from which new projects develop. I currently live in a rural setting and that cannot but be part of what I make.
