I am a sculptor/maker working mainly with wood to commission in the area of public art, creating both functional and non functional pieces. Using the highly tactile and organic material of timber, my approach is to create artworks which are inviting, engaging and inclusive. There are references to natural forms and processes and the works hold layers of meaning. Ideas around transformation, regeneration and the cycles of nature are explored. Through the use of more abstract forms, viewers are invited to make their own associations and interpretations of my work.
My work involves the simplification of form and the use of surface pattern.
I make colourful plaster sculptures and collages. Birds ,trees and flowers are current themes. I build my sculptures and collages in layers; surface decoration being an important final step.
My degree in ceramics has informed and influenced my use of decoration, I scratch patterns into the surface and use printing techniques to add detail. I am inspired by children's use of imagery to represent the natural world.
I have over 15 years experience working with community groups and children in schools.
