A Passion For Change
Life is about change, transformation and growth. In my work I mimic life - I like to change my materials, trans-form them into something altered, yet recognizable - at least most of the time.
I especially appreciate the opening up and looking inside that I get to do with the tree, the book and the tea leaves.
My concept or intention is most often quietly hovering in the background of my awareness. I have learned to trust and follow it’s subtle lead.
In my work I explore the unknown. Through repeated covering, layering, exposing, sanding and scraping, the piece evolves and becomes known to me - only to be discovered anew through the beholder’s imagination.
