As an inherent problem solver, influenced by organic forms and geometric shapes, my intrigue with material manipulation has led to the development of work emphasising the connections and contradictions between the soft and organic and the precise and industrial. The production of the work, the challenges thrown up by the original idea, means that  technical skills are always developing and  that process led formulae are constantly being modified. This combination is integral to the creative process, allowing for the further evolution of the work.
