My projects have all involved the same thread of attempting to make visible the intangible. The objects, the house, the vans, the artwork; they attempt to rescue and reveal the human history held within, like time machines or portals that suspend, momentarily the nature of human existence.
It is the patina, the atmosphere, the shadow of previous generations that I love. All things are rescued, revived, re-loved – objects that whisper their mysteries of human existence. I collect, gather, attract, find and seek out the objects that have been discarded, playfully reinventing them.
Creating an oasis and refuge in a storm that soothes the soul and comforts the heart is the underlying ethos behind everything I make.
