"I enjoy exploring the expressive qualities of materials having worked in stone, ceramics, concrete, bronze and lately silver. Have also made installations (kinetic with sound) and created performance.

An interest in Archaeology and history has informed much of my work.  Art and Archaeology have common purposes in exploring possibilities of the human condition; who/what are we? Both involve  a quest for knowledge and understanding that can never be fully expressed, realised or complete. There is always a mystery."
