Personal statement

Artistic Statement

My work explores the ephemeral qualities of memory. Moments in our memory are remade every time we recall them. What is lost from our memory is lost from our lives, while people and objects lost in time can live on in our memories.
I am a collector of objects, linking each with a part of my life, so they become a kind of time line that anchors me to existence. There is something of the captured moment in the art of making, something that flows, yet is set in time for posterity. The work is fluid, like the moment of creation on the potter’s wheel, and then it solidifies into an object that can live on beyond us, taking that moment of creation for ever with it.
