"I am changed through my art, stilled by the rust that never sleeps. It calms my sensitive and restless spirit, like a longing and coming home of sorts. I challenge myself to work creatively with materials that I have readily accessible and will often initiate a work of art with the selection of a single, significant piece of scrap or object, like an agricultural disc or tool that I feel best resonates with my vision. I favour the raw qualities, textures, patinas and natural aging of materials over the application of color.I have a strong affinity with birds, both from an artistic and spiritual point of view."
