I am an artist who lives and works on the Isle of Sheppey. I draw inspiration from my environment and the objects I find within it.
I gather objects that have been thrown up by the sea, tumbled out of the cliffs, cast out or lost by their previous owners.
I use these found objects, both natural and manmade and more recently found bird remains, in my work.
I draw inspiration from the rich textures and patinas that build up on metals, the wear and erosion that affects wood, the way an object is marked and worn by it’s journey through time.
I try to relate a concept or emotion in my work using the frailty and erosion of the found objects, the narrative that they bring, alongside newly constructed elements in a variety of materials such as ceramic, wire, wood and concrete.
