My art work draws on the decorative fragmented surfaces of ancient jewellery, reliquaries, frescoes and tiled surfaces. Museums and Art Galleries fuelled my obsession from an early age. As a child I enjoyed piecing things together in my mind and learnt to appreciate highly decorative, elaborate surfaces that had been time worn and broken.
This has shaped the way I design. I prefer abstractions and incomplete images and textures and although my work has no direct narrative it does have a language of pattern, texture and colour. I like to capture the idea of buried treasure in my work, fragments of artefacts that were part of something bigger, which now no longer exist.
