Artist Statement

In my sculpture trees are symbols for the ancient, the store of wisdom: the time before any of us came to this place.  We are all travellers - we started out about the same time from Africa and have variously arrived here.  With rich tales of our journeys between.  

I am interesting in finding the universality in these tales, which come to us from many times and many cultures.  I work with dreams and folk tales, with steel and aluminium, with timber, fine metal leaf and with coloured glazes.  My birds - are they my whimsical, chattering narrators?
