    Artist Statement

    The work is primarily research based often utilising an architectural technique called fabric forming. The research initially formed part of my MA course. Since then, the work has been underpinned by exploratory fabric forming research methods, expanding the techniques employed to incorporate a wide range of materials and varied construction methods. Although employing fabric forming as an initial method of working, the theory that underpins the research considers physical structures, environmental forms and observed human shape and is rooted in a consideration of complex human and environmental issues that face us in a rapidly changing and challenging world and is an on-going exploration of sculpture as a visual language. I currently live and work between two studios, Cullercoats, Newcastle U.K. and in the Charente, France.
