Artist's statement:
"The themes my work addresses are consumerism, the economy, the environment and social culture. I explore these themes through the transformation of the found and throw away object but also through
transforming familiar industrial materials. With this transformative process I have found that my work often evolves after it has been realised, having to embrace the element of change after the work
has been conceived. I am continually considering how I as an artist can best serve my art and the environment."
