My work explores the effects of erosion and decay on surfaces. I’m fascinated by the surfaces created by the environment upon manmade objects, metal, wood or plastic. I find layers of decayed paint on an object and the effect upon them of time and the elements to be particularly enthralling, but I am also captivated by the effects the environment has upon the naked surface.
Further sources of inspiration and ongoing interest to me are naturally formed layers, laid down by the geological processes of the planet, such as sedimentation and volcanic activity.
I use my inspirations to create a developing series of forms and surface finishes that embody my ideas and inspirations and express the innate beauty I see in these natural processes. I seek minimalism of form in order to find balance with the complex surfaces I create.
