ARTIST STATEMENT 

 

 

For many years my work has been influenced by Zen philosophy.  Zen means stillness and it is my aim to create images and objects which reflect some of the aesthetics of Zen such as simplicity, clarity and restraint  to convey a feeling of serenity.

 

I like tactile earthiness and my pictures are built rather than painted. I use all sorts of natural raw materials which have been the source of our creativity since pre-historic times.
