I've drawn, painted and made things
all of my life in one way or another. Detail, colour, texture, shapes,
light and shadow…all things visual have always been very important
to me. As a child I enjoyed creating something out of nothing…a
dolls house from cardboard shoe boxes, a puppet from odds and ends, even
wooden stilts from an old broken piano.
I have never wished
it to be a restrictive technical exercise but more an explorative process,
where I feel freedom to discover things 'en route'. This way, it retains
its sense of fun and playfulness.
