I have an interest in ancient writings and markings. I love creating work that conveys a sense of antiquity as well as mystery: where you sense there is some knowledge inscribed, but it is just beyond your comprehension, buried in your subconscious archetypal memory.

I use a variety of materials: ceramic, glass, sand that glitters,and/or pastel, in my wall pieces to create layers, depth and changing colors depending on the viewer's perspective. They really do change a lot according to whether they are lit by the sun, tungston light, indirect or direct rays. What follows is a glimpse of what each piece looks like at an instant of time.
