My specialism is lateral thinking, resolving the complexity encountered in the world with reductive poetic logic. I intertwine commercial and cultural practice: responding to the paradox of daily life and the complexities of project assignments. I seek focused solutions that feel inevitable. I get there by starting at the beginning, asking why, what if… then making sense of the things I find with radical acceptance and by embracing truth.

Please follow me on Instagram. I am reposting works, exploring the things I have made over the past twenty years in preparation for the next twenty years.

Tops
coloured plastic tops arranged, stacked, balanced, knocked down then rearranged

Over the past couple of years I have been saving the coloured plastic tops from the containers before I recycle them. There are some duplicates, but my intention is that each one is unique. Individually they are beautiful, but together they are perfect. The colours are unlike colours that can be printed, painted or displayed on a screen. When placed together amazing combinations and extraordinary relationships occur.

Playing with them, arranging, grouping, stacking, is a joy. They are like children’s building blocks, each a component from a larger family of parts.
