Artist Statement:

“My work is a reflection or perhaps the result of the my international travel, client commissions and interactions with fellow creative friends. It is all about constant exploration of visual and conceptual observations on what I see each diverse day. Relationships between colour and patterns draw upon my study of textiles and recent work for Marimekko (Finland) or discovering hand made artifacts in Oaxaca, Mexico. Distillation and representation of this wide ranging narrative is at the centre of my design, art practice and studio life as an artist.”
