From Artist: My work portrays contrasting impulses within. I love the challenge of technical precision but I need to be able to play and explore. I enjoy making beautiful objects but I am not afraid to create pieces that evoke emotions more complex than just aesthetic appreciation. In some ways I’m an anarchist, I’m not happy when things are just comfortable. I am restless, always looking for an angle and this is reflected in a body of work that is quite diverse.
Having said this, there are common threads running through my work. I love the gorgeous glow of light through frosted glass. I highlight and contrast this with layers of colour and surface decoration; I frame it in bold forms that make strong visual statements. I take inspiration from a broad range of influences and have enjoyed developing my work with my partner, Yuri Yanai. In the spirit of diversity, the current work pushes on two fronts, more refined and greater freedom.
