My work focuses on my perception of the natural world. The concept of space and how it is shared, not just by humans. An examination of existence and identity. Family characteristics, human nature, the passage of time and the memories left behind. These are my inspirations. My wire faces created as part of the fixtures of a local teatre are bringing together ideas from the NOH theatre of Japan where the main characters use their visual appearance and their movements to suggest the essence of their story other than words. I have added my own observations from life and performances in the theatre.
