On my own art//
I would be lying if i said there are concepts or themes that run through my work, i don’t really think about it in those terms. I think I’m an object maker, perhaps driven by a bit of an imagination and those emotive life stimuli. I would like to think that i make striking objects that interest the viewer for long enough that they make their own narratives about them.

Art in future//
