I am interested in landscape and the minutiae of everyday living: the network of our day-to-day world. What beauty is hidden in a scrap of metal found on the roadside? Can I juxtapose patinated automotive steel with silver, silk or keum-boo to make something unusual and new? I love the thought that something found in a wreckers yard, or old road signage, can be transformed and worn and seen as an object of beauty. It becomes something else entirely, yet still carries traces of its origins. My art practice is an ongoing exploration of the possibilities in found materials, stones and metals and observations of my everyday.
