My work over the years has been in response to land, movement and dance. My ‘Land’ work involves pattern, fissures, movement and habitats. ‘Nature’ is precarious, beautiful elusive; sometimes calming or unsettling, proceeding from one event to the next.Archaeology provides me with a connection between places, times and ritual. The ‘Dance’ of the Minoan Bull Leaping Ritual in ancient Crete has been a recurring theme in my work. LEAP, Soar and fall. My work continues to be influenced by visits to Europe, Arizona, New Mexico, California and Japan. I am currently working in California.’’
