“I don’t tell a story about the way it happened but by the way I remembered it”
Creating art for me is a form of ritual and might be the impulse behind or the culmination of landmark moments in my life. It is not only an expression of the glorious moments but of the deepest and darkest times too. Using basic, earthy materials I strive to create magic and beauty, like a character in a fairy tale spinning gold out of grass, or the alchemist turning lead into gold. My personal experiences are woven into my work and inform the creative process from start to finish, but they are ultimately universal expressions of love, joy or grief, of emotions that speak to us all.
