My sculptural work often includes found materials, and these are used in conjunction with prefabricated parts to construct large structural forms. Using these elements in my sculptures gives them a new place in the world. I aim to show the viewer items or materials that might otherwise be overlooked.

Travel provides me with structural ideas, new materials and exciting cross cultural references. The reflections I make on my surroundings or environment come through my careful choice of objects. I rely on visual experiences and chance discoveries to evolve work. This process of discovery and development is integral to my practice.

 

The idea of balance is another common theme in my work. Whether it is physically balancing or suspending items like test tubes or silk worm cocoons with bricks, or balancing materials in a more sensitive way in terms of colour, shape or form, for example.
