The inspiration for my work is centred around my deep fascination for contrasting textures and images in the environment around me. This fascination culminates in objects whose chief role is an aesthetic one.
Through metal, I am trying to convey my interest for the juxtaposition of form and texture, rough and smooth. I am also interested in movement, fluidity and equilibrium, which I try to translate with my sculptures. I tend to work in sequences of three pieces, one relating to the other with subtle changes. Each piece is unique and vary in size from small items you can hold in your hand to life-size artwork. Different welding techniques and forging allow me to experiment with form and texture. There is a fair amount of unpredictability and spontaneity with steel which make the work very distinctive. I have recently departed from figurative to abstract work to push further my experiments with balance, motion, light and texture. In this process, I also combine such mediums as wool and glass blending in my background of being born and brought up in Chartres, France and moving to Scotland.
