'Although I use an array of different materials, I am drawn to use paper for its instant transformational possibilities; the materiality of paper and its ability to create an embodied presence when folded and formed, moves it away from being a support for image-making.
Sources of inspiration include the micro/macro in nature, the processes of perception and the relationship between the physical, psychological and the spiritual. Within these broad themes, transformation, connectivity and energy are key.
I am drawn to the Japanese wabi-sabi aesthetic in seeing the beauty of things incomplete, impermanent and imperfect. In metaphysical terms, wabi-sabi implies that the universe is in constant motion either evolving from nothingness or dissolving towards it. Yet ‘nothingness’ is not believed to be empty, but a soup of unlimited creative possibilities.'
