Artists Statement

Our dreams give us safety to explore the many facets of our existence and our relationships, whether good, bad or indifferent.

We also day dream as we go about our daily routines. In the relationship we share through my work, my mind's freedom flows through my sense of touch, and the full range of human emotion and endeavour is available to me as the giver, and to you as the receiver.

Words flow from my dreams to yours.
