My work is predominantly inspired by landscape. I love exploring the rugged cliffs and other geological sites of Britain. It is there I am able to connect with the play of light on the natural world. My process begins when I am faced with the elements and the history of the land – the apparent as well as the unseen forces at work. The feel of the place interacts with my imagination. I am inspired to design and make sculpture that interacts with light. I use the properties of transparency, refraction and reflection to create an inner world within an outer form. The process of making – from concept to realization – allows for the unexpected to take place. This can be exciting and often leads to new discoveries that inform and ensure the work is evolving. The sculptures are one-off pieces, many in private collections in the UK and USA.
