Statement

My creative inspiration has emerged from an exploration of the sense of place that I have for the North and West Highlands and Islands. To me this is an intensely private landscape forged through background influences of how I came to know this place from the strata of collective and individual memory, time and experience – a childhood spent running free and wild with the land brought to life by stories and legends.

This sense of place is expressed through materials and process where like a child playing with building blocks each step is a response to what has gone before and accidental chances evolve from the creative exploration. I follow where I am led using intuition as a guide. From this evolutionary process of place my work emerges showing an influence of minimalism juxtaposed with an organic quality. The final process merges the distinctions between the industrial and the natural to construct the whole.
