My artwork stems from about ten years of painting. In recent years I have become more interested in exploring layers of pattern through whatever mediums are relevant to the subject matter or concept. I am interested in visual metaphor that emerges from intensive art practice, play and responding to my lived environments. Through experimenting with personal and meaningful metaphor and different materials, I arrive at works that can be described as mixed media paintings and/or textile based works as well as my sculptures.
I am currently exploring microscopic pattern, colour and musical structure through visual art.
