Most of my inspiration comes from the ocean and boats that have been an important part of my life since early childhood, and from my garden, which fills me with delight through all its changing seasons. I am intrigued by the connectedness of moving and growing things in and around these elements and the relationships possible between them. As a rather practical person I have dicovered through clay that I am drawn to fantasy. Magical towers float in the sea, fish grow wings, birds become boats, and human forms combine with fish, birds and flowers... the possibilities are endless.
Often these forms seem to develop of their opwn volition. Are they allusive, metaphorical or representational?
I don’t know, they frequently seem to be a combination of all three.
