“My artwork is inspired by mother-nature’s ‘installations’ formed by water, wind, light and dark. Patterns in nature, textures and seasonal changes have always played an important role in my art practice where inspiration and internal wisdom is transformed into sculpture. Eastern philosophy and aesthetics provide a container in which I focus my attention on creating work that speaks to concepts of ‘the spaces between’. I explore my perception of a sense of place and my relationship to that place.”
