Throughout my work I have been intrigued by the concept of transformation over time, more specifically from one medium or state to another. My Rust Drawings depict a fascination with turning something that is decaying and at the end of its life in the conventional sense into an everlasting piece of beauty. Traditionally rust has been considered a sign of destruction and corrosion. However I find it incredibly beautiful, signalling a transformation to a new level where life and growth continues through chemical processes that we, as humans, have little control over. .

This sense of change permeates other areas of my work where minimalist form is manipulated through the application of light, while reflecting the true essence of Sacred Geometry elements found throughout our natural world. In my 3D Line-Drawings, each image consists of 2 or 3 different representations, all co-existing in the same artwork and only revealing themselves when different lighting conditions are applied (such as daylight, UV and in complete darkness).

Education

1989 - 1992:   B.A. Social Science

1994 - 1998: B.A. Fine Arts

2010:  Spafi Comprehension Animation Course

Most recently I have discovered the world of Fluid Art, where the transformation and natural elements come together to create beautiful abstract reflections of our universe..... Pure magic... 

It is this ability to see how facets can co- exist and operate on multiple dimensions depending on what natural elements are applied (such as light or air) that I find incredibly inspiring.
