The complexities surrounding us in everyday life can become overwhelming when trying to consider every variable and every detail.  And yet it is this cacophony of information that I draw inspiration for in my work.  I am particularly drawn to the subtle patterns and interactions in the natural world and attempt to make works firmly rooted in the places they are about, considering not only the physicality of the place, the geology and the ever changing environmental conditions, but also the cultural identity of that place, the stories, skills and language of the local community.
