My art reflects the universal desire to make sense of the world around us and our place within it.
I feel compelled to grapple with the unconscious forces within and to manifest them in abstract forms. In that manner, I see art as a mirror reflecting from the inside out.Having originally trained and worked internationally as an instructor in dance, tai chi and yoga, I draw upon my understanding of movement to inform my practice and am fascinated by the challenge to bring matter to life.
Earlier works in stone and clay sit between primitive symbolism and the experimental element found in minimalism. In more recent years, I have been attracted to architectural structures of modern life as much as being inspired by the power and flow of organic forms in nature.
This dynamic combination of precision and fluidity expresses itself in different materials I use such as metal, wood and works that I cast. My latest mixed media projects seek to express the importance of transformation by taking discarded and found objects and giving them a new lease of life. I am particularly inspired in expressing in form the Buddha's teaching that "with our thoughts we create the world."
My hope is to offer viewers the opportunity to recognise and connect to a deeper aspect of themselves.
