I'm experimenting with different materials and creative processes to find what I love doing and to develop my practice having not had a formal art education.

I primarily work with stone trying out different types and learning different carving techniques to better understand the nature of the material, its colours, textures and properties and what works.

What I have learned is that the stone itself is the heart and soul of what I make. Its hardness, colour, texture and imperfections dictate a lot of the creative process either as a block I impart my ideas upon or a unique stone that guides my ideas.

I've also worked with plaster on its own or over armatures to build up more plastic flowing forms in contrast to subtractive carving process.

Colour and the association with form is a recent area of exploration both in terms of carving for colour and applying colour to plaster form.
