My eternal love is the wilderness, and my obsession is the intersection of the man-made with wildlife. I love to contrast imagery of nature with found objects such as ceramic vessels, finding the beauty in both but with the underlying awareness of the pervasive destructive element of humankind. I am fascinated by the structures, colours and patterns found in animals and plants, and am intrigued by those that flourish in built environments.
