Artist's Statement

I like the thought provoking aspect of art and I think of it as entertainment for the eyes and imagination. I work in many layers, sometimes repeating the process ľa dialogue of reactions and responses.

My work must have a presence and a purpose and should be as exciting to own, as it is to create. The ultimate compliment for an artist is when people choose your work to hang on their wall.

Artist's Statement

TOKONOMA

In a traditional Japanese reception room the tokonoma is a recessed space, slightly above floor level, for the display and appreciation of items valued for their beauty or importance. There is usually a hanging scroll complemented by an elegant flower arrangement (ikebana) or treasured piece of pottery, lacquerware etc. The selection will often reflect the season.

In these works I have been playing with the format and feeling of the hanging scroll and exploring the pared-back simplicity and elegance associated with traditional Japanese arts and crafts.
