Artist Statement

My practice evolves from my innate interest in nature, the environment and geology. Lines throughout my artwork mimic rock formations and patterns in nature. Artwork is formed of layers, frozen in geological time, from drawings and collages through to large wax sculptures. A representation and comment on the human impact on nature.
Time and memory have a critical role within my artwork. My practice explores the paradoxical idea of solidifying the human experience into physical forms. Whilst showing through physical decay, how humans and nature are always at the mercy of time.
