Why Everyday Wonders?
I look at the world around me with awe, our extra-ordinary world is there to be appreciated, that is the central focus of my practice: to look at the everyday with wonder.
My practice is best described as eclectic, whilst I utilise many processes nearly everything I create relates to the everyday in some way. I revel in the ordinary, celebrating the beauty of objects often perceived as boring. I have an affinity for labour intensive or time-consuming processes. An avid experimenter, finding new techniques and materials fills me with joy. Recycling also plays a key role in my practice. I see abandoned, lost or unwanted items as potential wonders.
With my diverse practice I hope to inspire people to view everyday encounters with child-like curiosity, admiration and wonder. To gaze with awe and appreciate that the world and all its occupants are full of wonder.
A little about me:
I live in Plymouth, Devon adventuring with my Cocker Spaniel Amba (a.k.a chocolate monster). I have a BA(hons) 1st class in Fine Art Practices.
