My work explores contemporary culture and universal themes but also responds to current events both political and personal. I express ideas using humour, creating unlikely scenarios or ridiculous juxtapositions to draw the reader into narratives with a smile before being faced with a mildly chiding finger. The figures are usually earthenware decorated with commercial glazes and stains. I use other materials such as epoxy and steel to achieve dynamic poses and will often have ancillary objects to create a sense of theatre.
