Mandalas which are sometimes defined as “vessels containing energy” might best describe my work. The meaning is by no means limited to art and we can extend it to ourselves. When you refine patterns of shape and movement in Tai Chi you are working with the mandala of yourself, both physical and emotional.
Great importance is placed on the creationary process of my artwork and the reinvention and recycling of wood has been used as a medium in recent years.
Wood is symbolic of change, growth and new beginnings and I like to think my works promote that in a positive way. Art is very powerful as our ideas and intention can be influenced by the energy of our surroundings.
Although based in Cornwall my frequent and extensive travels provide much of my inspiration.
