I am interested in the small quiet details that permeate daily life; details that are found in the intricacies of our inner world, in the subtleties of relationships and in the neglected stories of life histories. Giving form to these often overlooked areas has led to a continued exploration of formal sculptural and architectural space. It has also led me to explore another realm of space, personal space, and the way objects can be receptacles for ideas, carry content and tell a story. Although trained as a fine furniture maker, my work has always been more poetic than practical, finding beauty in imperfection and comfort in the detritus of the past. Inspired by the Modernist language of simplicity, my work focuses on small details, imperfection and nuance. I strive to bring the ordinary and overlooked to the fore by using the traditional methods and materials of the craftsperson to create simple forms embedded with contemporary ideas about memory and history.
