I am profoundly influenced by the sense of touch, inspired by the less noticed texture of the everyday world. The rusty metal roof, the soft windswept grass, the uneven cobbled street ..when I perceive these surfaces, my finger-tips almost immediately begin to tingle.
I like simple coherent statements, clarity and logic. I am fascinated by the high contrast that light & shadow generates; it powerfully but quietly focuses the mind. It gives a very precise three dimensional experience and a deeper understanding of the textures.
I enjoy the organic process of making. It is like a journey of discovery, an intuitive response to internal and external conditions. There is no predetermined final destination, just a concept. It is a dialogue with the object or material when there is space and time to allow myself to trust my instinct and subconscious.
I believe in openness, curiosity and compassion. Be(e) happy!
