Originally from the UK, I’ve always been involved with some form of art.
Either from a conceptual or structural aspect / depending on location and available materials have utilized the local resources.
Be it in Hawaii, the UK or Bay Area / ... the mini sculptural installations or layers of visuals have all come in to play / using different tools available and combining the visuals to produce my work and story-telling.
Tools have included photography, drawing / wheel thrown and altered porcelain. Found objects, acrylics and electronics.
