"My work is inspired by the beauty of mathematics and geometry. Themes based on the golden section, the mobius strip, borromean rings, the torus and trefoil knot run through my work. These are forms which to me express the the tension of growth and life force through the movement of unfolding, intertwining and twisting. I work with alabaster which is soft, smooth and translucent and takes a fine polish. It is a tactile material which invites the viewer to touch and follow the forms. I collect the raw pieces from Somerset beaches where the weather and sea has already begun the process of shaping the stones. Influences Constantin Brancusi, Romanesque sculpture, Barbara Hepworth, mathematics, knots, platonic solids, crystals, Maori art and organic form."
