My work is a work of contrasts with the occasional reference to literary characters.  I assemble industrial mass-produced items (rubber doormats, steel band, cable ties etc) to make individual pieces by borrowing elements from church architecture, historic fashion, armours, and organic forms. Using crafts techniques such as basketry or imitating needlework, these man-made materials are delicately tailored to give an overall impression of a dance between desire and constraint, attraction and repulsion, delicacy and danger.
