Biography

Concepts I am a site specific environmental artist responding to 'place'; creating sculptural solutions in the landscape from earthworks enduring many years to temporary installation lasting only a few days. The spatial aspect within my work is a key element to consider. Place gives inspiration, meaning and strength to the forms and lines so that the sculpture becomes integrated with its surroundings.
