My works are inspired by children, the beautiful way that they make art warms my heart and soothes my soul. I treasure the local, the small-scale, the eccentric, the ordinary – whatever I make is out of caring and by re-using and recycling past treasures.
Materials have their own voice and way of communicating and engaging the viewer and I enjoy including a bit of whimsy to my pieces so that they draw you in closer to see what you might be missing.
As an art therapist I also see the healing that can be found in art. To be able to express yourself in any medium as a child or an adult is beautiful, authentic and real.
