Artist's Statement

My creative process is informed by concepts of visual literacy. The dot, line, shape, direction and colour are all crucial factors in visual literacy as they act as a language for us to read and understand our surroundings. I am most inspired when elements of ‘visual stress’ are introduced, such as contrast and imbalance. I use these elements in my work to create bold, modernist designs which aim to fascinate and attract the viewer with colour, pattern and material.

I am attracted to enamel because of its methodical process, which allows me to achieve colour, pattern and texture in a formal and structured way. My love of this technique has led me to explore alternative materials in my work, not normally associated with enamelling.

By introducing ceramic honeycomb block as a carving material I am able to create tactile and sculptural forms, which I then enhance with colourful enamel in a similar process to traditional enamelling, but on an unexpected and innovative material.
