Luminous Spirit Exhibition Vessel June 2010Making sculpture is an intensely personal and emotional processfor me. Objects hold so much in terms of energy, emotion, and spirituality. I want to communicate these subtleties through colour, form and qualities of surface treatment. More than anything these pieces represent for me the joy of being alive and the beauty that life can show us.
