BIO

I am inspired by natural landscapes, coastlines and what can be found and discovered within them. I demonstrate this through expressive drawing with ink, using a selective colour palette of blue, white grey and black. I am currently finding inspiration in the way I capture the movement of water with ink. It is this that I translate and encapsulate using enamel on copper vessel forms. 
I relish the duality of perfection and imperfection that occur within natural forms. Wasp nests, bee hives and unusual fungi are my inspiration for the hand pierced elements that encase and grow over the enamelled vessels. Emulating how nature reclaims objects and how it is an unpredictable force, I simulate this with the uses of contrasting and complementary layers. 
There is nothing more thought-provoking than something that is perfectly imperfect.
