This is a 2016 content update.

My recent work has been shaped by a keen interest in craftsmanship and ‘outsider’ artistic expressions. I’ve centred on hands-on pieces and pushed ideas into the background: it’s a case of working because I feel something and not because I think something.

I reached this way of working after feeling a longing for manual work, which I see as a form of creativity and therefore freedom.

These ideas are intimately linked to an ideological position based on going back to basics – a political position within our hyper-industrialised society that has neutered our most valuable powers.
