"With the sculpture it’s pretty certain that I will work on a head or figure type form that usually starts with 100 year old wood beams. It’s a process of working with chainsaws then chisels till a personality emerges that I follow further.
In the painting studio, I decide which series of works I am currently motivated or inspired to work on and whether the medium is encaustic, oils or acrylics.....if for example, I have an exhibition scheduled in the Industrial landscape theme then I focus my energy in that direction etc....There are a few different series of works that I continue to explore which get my creative juices flowing, it keeps me feeling fresh and inspired."
