My work is largely inspired by human and organic forms, I find charm in the imperfections and the subtle shapes that can change a piece completely. I want my work to feel playful and inviting.
My journey with clay began when I was trying to reconnect with myself through art, I found traditional approaches to be too structured and limiting. The tactile and playful nature of clay allows me to experiment with no boundaries.
I often draw inspiration from the process, starting with a bag of clay and ending with a piece of artwork is a beauty in itself.
Choosing colour comes last for me, after watching the sculpture come to life and develop its own being. Adding colour to a piece is the defining moment, whether that means to leave a piece completely raw, or bringing something new by painting it. I like the idea that when you touch a piece of art you connect with the artist; every inch of the artwork has been touched or thought about by its creator.
