I aim to create living and playful works that engage the public, using a visual language of domestic objects, play and the profane. The works encourage interaction and can be used informally. I want to overcome the reluctance for people to intimately interact with an object just because it is a so-called artwork set in a so-called gallery.

I work with bronze and I will often pause a piece at a particular step in the making process, leaving a trace of the maker, pieces thus retain the strength and resistance of their materials, and crucially reflect the joy of the making process.

I want to encourage a sense of experimentation and play in the space, so that relationships with individual works are built on interactions and physical touch. I hope that this active participation with the work allows a more profound experience; involving play, touch and communal participation.
