My art practice is deeply inspired by childhood memories of visiting religious and historical sites within Europe. The elaborate figurines and sculptures fuelled my imagination and made me question the stories behind the art. Since the beginning of my art practice I have been drawing on the inspiration I gleaned from these visits, and have endeavoured to create ceramic pieces that make the viewer question the story behind the piece and stir their imagination. I hope to connect with the people that view my work by evoking an intellectual and emotional response.
Clay is a medium I found an instant affinity with. It is extremely versatile and fluid, the possibilities are endless. I revel in the experience of taking a block of clay and creating something that tells a story, something that resembles life.
My work reflects on how our society trifles with the necessity of change. Change of environmental, social and economic behaviour. With concerns for the future development of our society, I try to capture a visual dialogue about the essential transformation of our contemporary culture.
