“Her work bears strong echoes of potters Claire Curneen and Mo Jupp – the strengths lie in silent contemplation rather than provocation” Christina Lai
I am inspired by the human body in all its forms. Aesthetically I am seduced by the tactile, sensuous nature of its landscape, emotionally by the way in which it can reflect the human condition, and intellectually by its artistic possibilities as a symbolic representation of what it means to be human.
In Genesis 2:7 Adam, the first man, was formed out of the ‘adamah’, being the Hebrew word for the ground, the earth, or clay. To use clay as the medium with which to create these images of the human figure is, to me, not only instinctive, but also the most congruous way of representing the subtle nuances and delicate impressions that individualise the human figure.
I work in clay, bronze, stone and charcoal drawing. I do realistic portraiture in a number of mediums as well as my own conceptual work, along with garden sculpture and installation. Painting and drawing inform and fuel my sculptural work.
