My work is concerned with the symbolic language of objects, words and relationships, in what is implied, in the borderline between what is real and illusory, and in images that metamorphose.

I am inspired by the objects of everyday life and often by non-Western sources of all cultures and times - textiles, calligraphy and sculpture.

I use what I find, eg., debris that I might spot on the ground, a picture in a book, or something I have made in a piece I am working on, and follow the trail of the process in whatever medium. I work as a printmaker, a painter in encaustic and oil, and as a sculptor.
