Being an artist

Please give us a few words of introduction about yourself

 

I am fascinated by the intricacy of naturally occurring voids, my work challenges the viewer to look further into my pieces. High polished lenses present themselves as windows to the internal contours of each piece. Using free-formed wax as a starting point, each piece develops and is translated into different contexts, whether that be sculptural, ‘art furniture’ or lighting.
