Artist Statement

I am fascinated with the idea of having ideas. Creativity is not exclusive to the gallery or the art and design world. Instead I see the public outside of this domain as the engine for forward thinking ideas. My frustration to fix to one discipline has become an influence to my practice. My art is an alchemy, pouring ideas from various disciplines, sport, fashion and elsewhere into a cauldron. I watch as ideas ferment. I operate with objects and materials to turn into unconventional functions such as whiteboards, PVC, Sellotape and glue guns. Processes created act either as a final outcome or a tool for the audience to contribute for idea exploration.
