Most of my art touches on childhood, on growing up and its anxieties. It is as much an exploration of memory as of physical experience. Not necessarily concrete recall, more moods and atmospheres, interwoven with elements from myths and fairy tales.

Working across various media, I use the physical as an entry-point into the psyche and try to make emotions manifest, teasing out what can't be spoken. I look for ways of considering difference, esp. the sense a child might have of not being, not feeling 'right'. There is a degree of innocence, but anchored in and evocative of bodily things, instinct, desire, pleasure, pain, loss. It is small and intimate work, intense and loaded with humour, ambiguity and contradiction.
