The lines between art, life and work are blurred - art connects to life experiences. My work is influenced by previous ‘lives’ I’ve had, places I’ve been to and people I’ve met.
I like the fact that all aspects of my life are inter-related and I realize that this blurring is essential for my well being. Making art and teaching are closely connected. One feeds the other, so that I still enjoy teaching workshops as ideas can be developed through the teaching process.
The studio is a place of refuge (and often chaos), but there is always a place to go, a place where I can expand, invent or follow through ideas that have emerged in the night...
Travel, which includes artists’ residencies, is important to me. Being exposed to other cultures and environments has influenced me to see and to respond in different ways.
