STORYTELLING

My background in theatre is deeply connected to my work. I use my materials like actors performing in a play. Paint, stencils, wallpaper, alkyd, glue, combs, cookie cutters, turkey basters, eye droppers, photographs, maps, all manner of ephemera, are cast, directed and "perform" in a visual story I create. I want my work to reflect the same standards as successful dramatic storytelling. I challenge myself to create work that is interesting, evocative, accessible, compelling and, most importantly, human. The human element cannot be overstated. My work must reflect the human urge I feel to create as well as draw upon the strange and fascinating inspiration I find in the wealth of humanity that surrounds me.

"I regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a person can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being"
