Artists Statement……

I have always let my intuitive-self guide me through various mediums, including watercolours, weaving, ceramics and now sculpture. Always learning, experimenting, evolving and living in the now, I just love to create and inspire others to create.

Creating sculpture from various mediums presents unique challenges and creative possibilities – and it has given me an unusual freedom in creating sculpture and art. I thoroughly enjoy the process of creating and then the interaction with others whilst they view my finished work!  Each piece may have an attitude; it tells its own surreal story inviting a second look, touch or thought and as a three dimensional form there is a very strong connection or bond between my art and humans. It is this interaction that makes my  art more interesting and full of life.

My work has often been described as inspiring, captivating and thought provoking. I certainly hope it touches your inner-self and perhaps makes you smile. May my creative journey continue for a long while and perhaps our paths will cross again.  Thank you Universe!
