My inspiration comes from the unsurpassed beauty of nature: the vast and the minute, the ever-changing, the always new and visually fresh.
I am fascinated by the natural essence of colour and it’s dependence on light as the ultimate illusion tool. My gilding technique gives me a way of capturing beautiful moments without forcing them into static forms.
All my work is interactive, in that it transforms according to varying
light sources, either by blending in or by reflecting surrounding colours. Gleaming against dark surfaces, the pieces endlessly reveal new versions of themselves.
