“I have had the pleasure of working with nature, bronze, clay, gypsum, metal, marble, minerals, cement, wood, found objects, colour and sound.
I have found that in exploring the creative process, my artwork reflects various ideas and developments in my personal mythology. This process continues to inspire me to action and to dialoguing about our evolving world and times. It is one of my most valuable teachers.
My themes tend to be inspired by ideas about Nature, our human belief systems, personal and planetary evolution and our ultimate interconnectedness.”
