I have always held a passion for Art Practice although my previous career has been within the Horticultural industry and plant science research. I previously gained qualifications for Horticulture, Applied Biology (Plant Sciences). Since 1998 I have increased my education in art as a change in direction. My specific interests are three dimensional work with kinetic elements, painting, printing, sound art and video. My work aims to show my fascination with living organisms, a constant cycle of new life and degeneration. I consider organic function to be similar to that of a machine and the cycle of time.
I favour working in mixed media, loving the vibrancy of acrylics as well as the translucency of water colour glazes. I have a broad subject matter incorporating landscapes, still life and life drawing.
My ceramic sculptures are mainly figurative.
