My practice has principally become an infinite exploration of surface and experiments in process that teeter between structure, control and self creating organic objects. I like to work in the space between sculpture and painting, shaping works for their haptic qualities as much as visual. Having trained as a scientific and medical Illustrator I found myself avoiding representation in favour of abstraction. However geological, biological, chemical processes, and structures still feed and inform my work. Through accreted surfaces with half familiar forms I seek to provoke questions beyond mere construction and elicit a primal response. Raising thoughts of birth, life, existence, proliferation, decay and the relationship between the organic and non organic.
