  • Biography
My work is characterised by lightweight, intricate, wooden structures.

I am fascinated by the tools and processes adopted in agricultural practices and the elemental experience of working directly with the land.

In response, I exemplify these practices in the studio, working each element meticulously and selecting labour-intensive, repetitive processes, celebrating the irregularity of the natural material and subtly evidencing the hand.

The resulting sculptural vessels are a multitude of parts held in a rhythmic whole; lines drawn in space, punctuated by visual motiphs, light and substance held in tension.

My intention is to draw the eye and mind to look again at the familiar yet, so often unremarked and un regarded natural landscape that surrounds us, and to encourage contemplation.
