Sculptural work has evolved from using material gathered from the local environment.
Ideas of transformation and order at the centre of developing a visual language that draws on fundamental considerations of form and proportion which take on common themes of sequences, rhythms, pattern and texture.
The approach gives an alternative view of using everyday material we see in the natural world. How and what will be useful is a constant process of assessing what has been useful and could make the difference to inspire new projects for investigation.
Preconceived outcomes are generally unhelpful as the process relies totally on what materials that are found. Collecting & making, making & collecting inform each other to find different ways to develop the work.
