I work with ideas about individual creativity. I am interested in how our creativity develops and what the implications of this are for us as adults.
“Winnicott understood… that creativity was a way of living; it was not simply the province of artists and poets but potentially in reach of all.' (Wright, 2009)
My work is inspired by a combination of self-reflection and reading, particularly of psychoanalytic ideas and the work of Donald Winnicott.
I work with sculpture, sound and video to express early blocks to creativity and the states of mind connected with this. I also work with painting and sound in an attempt to find a creative flow and freedom of gesture.
I feel most free when I am out in the countryside and ideas of landscape, natural materials and sounds are an essential feature of my work.
