‘My work is exploring the forces of craft, time, biology, technology and human connections. Much of these forces including those that we recognized but never quite fully witness. I build hand crafted sculptures implementing the skills I have honed through years of working as a boat builder, carpenter and designer. My performance based art is focused on connecting artists and artist communities globally through digital platforms and live events.
I am always trying to give nature a voice to inform my abstract art. My research and relationship with nature is developed by daly walks in the woods, sailing and by the study and creation of figurative sculpture.’
