ARTIST STATEMENT

Fusing the textural engagement of traditional working methods with contrasting contemporary materials and methods of formation, I am continuously broadening my technical and methodical working practices. This dynamic and fluid approach ensures that all of my projects are meticulously hand crafted, independent, and unique
