Artists statement

I have an unquenchable desire to create. I have the need to see my imagination come into this reality and inspire a response from the viewer. I feel we are all connected by our humanness and have the ability to evoke emotion through many artistic mediums, my mediums of choice are acrylic paints and clay.  I am inspired by what is all around us, the sun, the sky, the moon, the stars, the earth and the sea are my muse for my impressions put to canvas.  In abstraction I try to capture a feeling, an emotion, something tangible to grasp in the seen and unseen.

My work in clay is tactile and my three dimensional images organic in form, I let the clay become what it wants to become. Playing in the mud is great fun and it always surprises and amazes me at what beauty is hidden inside that lump of clay. The earths gift to us all.

I create because this is my obsessive passion.
