Creating dialogues through sculpture and painting
The basis of my work is the human form, with references to Greek mythology, theatre, feminism and folklore.
I am drawn to forests, woodlands, humans and animals. I hunt, gather and forage in the woodland at the back of my house for found objects and twisted branches, smooth stones, oxides, coal, metals, plants and the odd skull or bone. Every item has a history and a story to tell. I create dialogues as I bring the pieces together to one complete piece.
Much of my work is fuelled by long car journeys from the Midlands through to west Wales to visit parents.
The journey through that wonderful landscape along the old road, much of which was an original Drovers road, skirting the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons and then travelling through the lush fields towards the sea. I am mindful of the subtle changes in the earth, the colours of the soils from Herefordshire to West Wales.
