Statement

The work on this site constitutes my ongoing exploration of the beauty, pathos and 
humour inherent in the everyday object, incident and environment. Materials used include 
objects such as bus tickets, car indicators, block ice, domestic appliances, soap and burnt 
matches. With minimal manipulation I strive to elevate and celebrate the commonplace, 
continuing the investigation of the everyday as a means for communication within the 
visual arts.
