The discarded and often overlooked in our daily environments are important to me. The structures I see and the objects that I find are constantly rediscovered in my work. I am fascinated by the lines, shapes, fragments and surfaces that are the basis of our urban and domestic surroundings forming the compositions that contribute to the geometry of our everyday lives.

Process is paramount and the physicality of building, layering, arranging, reusing  and recycling materials  has become a central part of my practice.

My work obviously has a very mechanical aesthetic but equally it is about observing possibilities and beauty in the unexpected.

It is about the rusty, rough surfaces against the smooth shiny metallic.

It is about the chunky, heavy machinery against precise, minute circuitry.

It has a relationship with the traditions of geometric painting yet also looks towards the future challenging the viewer to look a little closer.
