'I make objects, assemblages and I draw. I like my work to have a playful quality and enjoy discovering something new from, and about, working with the materials and scraps that inspire me. This can be used paper, cardboard, wire, wood, found objects with a tactile and visual quality, or resonance. I stick, scrape, soak in glue or water to refashion; push, tear and twist materials. I glory in accidents that send me in a different direction. I have produced a number of large drawings this year using a variety of different types of paper, and I continue to explore thoughts and ideas in sketchbooks. It is a personal journey but I hope the viewer finds some emotional connection in my work'.
