Artist Statement

My wood and mixed media sculptures and drawings explore humanity’s relationship with the gods, with tradition, with science and nature through both functional objects and symbolic forms. My newer sculptures often include hand-felted wool, an evocative material that, with its long and varied multicultural history – drives both their form and content.

My work has always been concerned with mythology and belief and where they intersect with human experience. I am also interested in stories, folk stories, urban stories and the wisdom that is passed down from one generation to the next, textured by landscape, heritage, and belief, that shapes and maintain a culture and ensures its continued survival.
