Artists Statement

Artists Statement

Each piece I make is a unique journey encompassing an appreciation of chance and exploring the balance between colour, line and form.

Inspired by opposing themes of spontaneity/control, organic/geometric, order/disorder, the forms emerge from a process which examines the relationship between instinctive action and form - intuitive, almost unconsidered movements which allow and encourage the unexpected to develop.
