I like to work with materials and things I’ve collected over time; having them all about the studio when I’m working seems to be a necessity…from chaos… as they say. I like to create works that are inspired by natural materials as much as those that are inspired by bits and pieces from cast-off manufactured stuff…well, I was a backpacker and an industrial designer! My sculptures do vary a lot, however, in their essence and size; some are inspired by social or political issues.
