I am drawn to the human figure and I try to make two- and three-dimensional work, which embodies a sense of being. To understand a feeling or emotion is to understand the stance, bearing or gesture, which incorporates it and so makes it visible.
Yet physical presence is always more than physical and I hope to represent the more-than-visible which inhabits what we see through forms which are themselves broken, fragmented, disconnected.
