"Echoes of another time, another place, another life. A whisper of unease of mystery, evoking feelings - stirring memories. Objects out of context, spaces that are unknown yet familiar. A lover of colour, a seductive iridescent shimmer, a flash of metallic, the sensual folds of satin. I have always been experimental with the material I use, adding textured papers, thread, fabric, gold leaf, inks and paint to create a tactile and alluring surface. Recently I have been exploring the possibilities of resin: the sometimes unexpected chemical reactions between pigments, room temperature and resin temperature can have a magical outcome - or not! Exciting and terrifying all at once."
