My process is a combination of working on an idea that I want to express or just playing with materials, allowing my subconscious to make the decisions. The later is fun because suddenly I ‘awaken’ from a sort of trance or meditation, a place of no thought, to find something pleasing has been created.

As a working landscape designer the three dimensional capability of wax calls to me, whether it is a buildup of layers on a panel or embedded objects in a sculptural piece.

My work often incorporates visual movement. The flow of water, the lapping of waves and the blur between land, water and air call to me. Keeping still is not something I do well so I enjoy creating art that suggests motion, from repurposed shoes to a sinuous line.
