First and foremost I am influenced by my immediate environment.
I work instinctively making connections with what is happening in my life through the exploration of a diversity of materials and techniques while remaining open to possibilities.
I want to surprise myself.
Relationships and the emotional ties that both bind and support us in life and the individual need to make a mark, to say 'I was here' interest me.
My family, living by the sea and my former work as an illustrator continues to inform my work.
I have also worked collaboratively with Elaine Allison for many years, to view our work follow the link under Alison and Bray.
