The Artist's Statement:  Foremost in my work has been a fascination with the very personal nature of seeing and over time I have explored this through various media.

The focus of much of what I do is concerned with the idea of ‘aesthetic experience’. I am interested in the ways that everyday observations and experiences have the potential to generate emotional and cognitive responses. Think of poetry.

I am also interested in the way that seemingly, ordinary everyday objects have the potential to become iconic and symbolic. To this end I use media as a kind of spotlight.
