(SEEING) - We view the past with a sense of romance, and mystery that we deprive our own times. Our perceptions of the past, change and alter with every version of every story.  I am drawn to imagery that acts as a record of an age’s interior life, building a joint memory of the people of that time. A uniqueness that is tied up with the uniqueness of the time they represent. (MAKING) - To then dislodge this vision, and use as a lens to view ourselves, our time and our world, to build a personal memory, or to discuss lesser told mythologies, has become my way to address all things present and absent. A way to talk about, the passing of time, its innate sense of multiplicity, that space between reason and romance and our need to re-wild in spirit and with nature. My work wanders. Unrestricted either by theme, materials or styles. The medium relevant, only as far as its contribution to want needs to be said and experienced. Clay - to build a home for the bees, cut paper - to snatch imagery, bright paint - to colour grey slate in winter, or my camera seeing far quicker than I could ever imagine. Each work made in its own way, telling its own story, in its own world. Worlds far apart, that cross paths, wander away and ultimately meet again and again and again...
