I am interested in light and shadow and the effects that they can have on the objects and spaces that surround me. Shadow and light can transform something that is ordinary and familiar into something that is strange and unexpected.
I draw inspiration from objects such as my kettle and bathroom basin, through to terrace houses, bridges and trees. My work harks back to the fears that night time can bring in childhood (and sometimes adulthood) when darkness places a veil over the world around us. What is familiar can become strange, what is expected might not be found.
