This work is based on an exploration of natural forms and the possibilities of materials. I am interested in our relationship with the artificial and natural worlds and encouraging the viewer to question these relationships. Using man-made materials to emulate natural forms and patterns, I juxtapose elements of control with erratic forms. I am interested in how we comfort ourselves in the spaces we create and inhabit and creating calm through a chaotic state of mind.

Process and materials play a large part in each piece. I choose materials that I cannot have complete control over, each piece is dependent on what the material is capable of doing. These works evoke recognition of our environment and the vulnerability of our daily life.
