Artist / Personal Statement
Shining stars and bright lights, human flesh and emotions, Christianity and symbolism, spirits and dreams.
The glory of life, the gift of a journey unknown.........
These are the Themes that run through the heart of my Artwork.
I try to capture these qualities through photography with light, colour, texture and imagination. The camera is like a tool, used to capture the expansion of my vision, encapsulating moments that resonate with me, in attempt to enkindle the emotions of the viewer.
I have also created sculptures from copper pipes, rubber, feathers and thorns. I have used these contrasting materials to invoke diverse emotions. Other sculptures encompass natural earth materials such as wood, soil, coco fibre and fat. I am attracted to natural and organic materials and, although my materials may vary, my themes stem from one tree branching off into different ideas which need new mediums, new materials and fresh methods.
The depths of our souls, cleansing and spiritual rebirth.....
what lies beyond the surface....
I try to capture these qualities of the unseen that can only be felt or experienced through the spirit.

Thanks Mary for requesting my friendship here... sorry, but I've not been online for months so only saw this now. I went on tonight to change my e-mail address. I think I figured it out! Will browse some pages, including yours before I leave...
