Every rough stone presents a challenge as it has its own character or individuality and each time takes me to a new aesthetic statement. As I work, I find myself in an intense dialogue with the material, which enables me to draw out what is hidden within each piece. This approach led to my larger sculpture commissions where I expressed, through an abstracted bird, the spiritual being or angel, or in another piece, the essence of partnership. The fluid movements of stone or wood lead me to explore the flow of life itself. It is the mystical visualisation of something inside and outside of myself that has always been the key motivation in my work, regardless of the materials I use.
