I enjoy exploring and experimenting with materials and processes that have the potential for unpredictability. I am fascinated by the tension between order and the unpredictable, the chance disruptive element that triggers a reordering response.

My practice usually starts with some observation of growth structure or pattern in the natural world. The work evolves in the making. It is a process of enquiry and play, not knowing what will be revealed or what will be the final outcome.
