Artist's Statement:
My work explores things that might be considered inconsequential, unattractive or even disturbing at first sight: Such diverse subjects as microscopic bacteria or urban debris might provide the inspiration for my paintings and glasswork. Through a process of deconstruction, I reveal the beauty that lies in unexpected places, and this becomes the focus of my finished pieces. As a result, my work is often aesthetically appealing, yet it always retains traces of its origins. I aim to beguile, intrigue and occasionally unsettle the viewer, taking them back through my creative process so they too can find fascination in things they might otherwise ignore.Both paintings and glasswork usually involve a range of different techniques and materials, and these are often selected to reflect and complement the subject matter. Paintings are built up gradually from multiple layers to produce a luminous, sensual effect. Glass pieces are kiln-worked, and I often use a combination of processes such as screen-printing, painting and etching to achieve particular effects. By working in two such distinctly different yet complementary media, I am able to push the boundaries of what might be possible to achieve in each. A painting may inspire a glass piece, and vice versa, and this helps to keep the work fresh and exciting.
