I have always been happiest when making a mess. Art for me, in my younger days, was a legitimate way for me to make a mess and not be told off by Mum or Dad. But as I grew older I realised I really did enjoy mark-making and creating an image or sculpture out of fairly random material. Out of this experimentation grew a love for ceramics, which I carried over into a university degree. At the moment I am exploring oil painting which I have found an absolute love for. I am fascinated by the influence of light and I am exploring the best way to portray that in an image. I still however struggle to hit the canvas.
