Being a curious collector of artifacts, antiques, found objects and fragments from nature, my studio is filled with source material reflecting my varied interests. These collections inspire and often times find their way into my mixed media work. The processes include metal plate intaglio printing, painting, drawing, collage and the construction of 3D sculpture boxes. My work draws upn a number of varied experiences, curiosities and influences. These include my love of art history, antiquities and ancient cultures, architecture, mathematical proportions and musical forms, the natural sciences and ornithology. My mixed media pieces are always contrasting order & chaos, the fleeting & the permanent, the ancient & the modern.
