I investigate, collect and then reassemble images and ideals of beauty and desire. I use themes of decoration and symbolism. Why do we live in such an amazingly colourful, creative and fascinating world?

I wonder how and why nature's beautifully decorative and complex patterns have evolved and I look at how we have responded to nature's patterns, rhythms and beats.

I look at how we love to decorate ourselves and our environment and how we are inspired by the natural world around us.

I am interested in the powers of attraction, repulsion and camouflage and how different species of life forms have relied upon these mechanisms for survival and reproduction.

I experiment with the boundaries between art, craft, design, popular culture, poetry and music.
