I am interested in using the limitations of ceramics to create an original image. I have focused on making Wall Pieces that combine three-dimensional forms with richly glazed surfaces.
By creating glazes I aim to develop a palette that is uniquely mine and push colour into my emotional presence. I am fascinated by the variety of subtle effects that can be achieved with glazes and continue to research new possibilities.
In my drawings and paintings I am particularly interested in trying to depict manifestations of psychological states and to convey a psychological presence.
