"The foundation of my current body of work lies in the Japanese aesthetic of Wabi-Sabi: exploring the beauty found within transience.  From finding a rotting garment by a stream to a stream of consciousness, my current collection travels through ethereal, abstract landscape style paintings into figurative ink drawings that investigate the subconscious."

"My work is extremely cathartic. I spend hours slowly manipulating the ink to find the right composition and sometimes when its dry writing streams of consciousness on top of the work. The writing for me is an important element, as a dyslexic it can at times be a huge struggle, but at other times the thoughts flow and the time flies."

My work therefore is about time and energy and expresses and exposes me as a person."

"My art quilt is titled ‘Fundy Flame Agate’ and was inspired by the photographs of Chris and Dave Sheppard of Nova Scotia. (visit Fundy Rocks on Facebook). It is definitely one of the more unusual art quilts I have created and was very challenging indeed."

"A representation of a slice of agate combined with a quartz amethyst center where I have used crystal beading, painted saran wrap, melted tyvek and all sorts of other techniques."
