Through my work I am looking at the various ways in which we interpret and understand the passing of time and how this in turn can be translated into a visual language. Time, whether considered as a physical, conceptual or philosophical force, can manifest itself in a wide variety of ways. My work focuses on materiality, support, time, action and product and is both sculptural and two-dimensional in form.
