Artist Statement

Materials do not generally have an intrinsic emotional value. It is not until they are fashioned into something that gives us a sense of beauty appreciation that we want to preserve them. I believe it to be a fundamental characteristic of human nature that we have always looked for, created and valued beauty throughout time.

It has the power to not only elevate our spirits but also our self worth. I endeavour to create work that will be handed down from generation to generation much like an heirloom of the past. In this way I honestly feel that I am archiving beauty.
