Artist statement

My aim is to create unique engaging objects. I love nature, drawing inspiration from the whole plant world which surrounds us. This has driven me to design and create organic delicate forms. Using metal, which has durable qualities, allows me to capture the constant flux in nature, and treasures these moments. I wish it would be possible to preserve special moments, to capture their beauty. This is what I aspire to achieve by making sculptural forms, reflect moments in something that will last; the durability of metal. This aspect of slowing down and ‘capturing something’ is echoed in the process of making.I absolutely love making and being engaged in processes.The process involves construction using traditional silversmithing techniques, forming sheet of metal to organic and flowing forms.
