My work draws inspiration from a variety of contrasting sources including architectural form and the natural landscape, shaped by a deep respect of the fundamental principles of Japanese aesthetics, I hope my work has boldness and visual richness, whilst simultaneously conveying feelings of simplicity, asymmetry, solitude and quietness.
Fundamental however is the delight in creating and making.
Over the years I have been fortunate to travel extensively to many countries. Whilst I don't necessarily derive any direct influence from visiting these countries, experiencing foreign cultures first hand provides immense stimulation to my creative process.
The images shown here do not necessarily inform any single piece of work; they in some way either inspire me or evoke qualities I wish to convey through my work.
