"There are many layers to my work, my earlier wood block prints spawning my current interest in the materials I now work with, together with my study of the mystic heart of scriptures. The recent pieces I have been making explore the contribution that symbols and figures make in sacred geometry within the landscape, seeking and searching for the true nature of the materials used, whether it is wood, paper, gold leaf, or the voice. I respond directly to the individual pieces of timers and materials selected, and the inner emotional journey undertaken during the making. I intend that people should interact with the works and record their responses. Drawing is an integeral part of my work; I regard it as the scales of my piano."
