"My ideas, feelings and thoughts are directly conveyed into the clay using the minimum of tools. The clay picks up every gestural mark, mirroring me... I push it around. The clay is almost part of me. It is my friend. A connection. A way of self-expression without words."
'I wish to evoke 'feeling' and mirror 'gesture' through the use of fast marks, quick making techniques and 'sketches'. My work sometimes has an unfinished quality which adds to the idea that the figure is a suggestion of a living being rather than a still ornamental object. It is important to me that my figures have an identity and are able to connect with an audience emotionally.'
