"My work follows a process of creating forms from man-made materials that explore the natural world.
Naturally occurring patterns inspire me to play with texture and symmetry, creating uniformity and rhythm through my construction skills. Utilising thousands of plastic cable ties enables me to give a usually industrial item new life and further manipulation with colour, creates an organic feel. I enjoy the challenge of transforming these ordinary found objects into desired forms that give me a sense of accomplishment."
