I aim to create a dialogue with my work. This may be done through posing a question in the title. Or via a topic or theme I consider an important springboard to discussion. I think it is important to always question what you are doing, why you are doing it and what is the point of it, what is the message? One of the most influential lecturers at Leeds, to my mind, was painter and sculptor, George Hainsworth. He taught me that you needed courage as an artist to break away from the mould. There always needs to be an element of fear in making work. I have never stopped experimenting with different mediums and practices. These are the drivers in my work.
