Artist Statement

I have always been fascinated by how humans and nature interact and my art explores the processes that result from this dynamic relationship. In the all too often angry conversation between nature and humans, people can be too keen to praise immaculate facades and to attempt to silence the rust, rot and decay of daily life, but ever-changing nature will always have the loudest voice and, despite our efforts, we too leave telling marks of the scratches and scrapes of our lives.

The pavements we tread, the walls we lean on and the doors we walk through every day are in a continual state of evolution. Paint peels, wood rots, metal rusts and the processes of nature dominate. My art celebrates these processes and the layers of past they reveal.
