Theme Statement
“The sphere shape was inspired by the work of Jacques Vesery, and the use of drying distortion by the work of Christian Burchard. I'm interested in creating random patterns that have no symmetry but still engage the viewer. The sphere was turned with the aid of a template then hollowed and a plug inserted in the hollowing hole. The random pattern was drawn then carved with burs used in a micromotor.”

Artist Statement
“My rural environment greatly influenced me, as I was able to observe the wind, fire and water impact the land. My intention is to incorporate these aspects into work that has a free, expressive and organic appearance while using carving and turning techniques to achieve a purity of form.”

Timber a living breathing organism that captures my imagination. The opportunity to express thoughts and ideas in a tangible creation that continues to react within its environment. To design and create in timber poses many challenges, both in structure and integrity, but the pleasure I derive from my work is simple: a joy and passion to create pieces of work that I like.”
