I am an artist and sculptor working in clay. I manipulate the material to evoke imaginary yet realistic forms. Each sculpture takes direct inspiration from the natural world combining original, organic shapes of both living and non-living things. Found refuse is often integrated into the design
of the works, intensifying the visual language and bringing a sense of history
to each sculpture.
My creative process balances hand building, deconstructing and reassembling forms by carving, marking and sculpting the surface until an emotional quality is revealed. Each work is
shaped by hand, and uses natural materials - like rocks and shells - to create the
unusual and irregular surface of the final piece.
