About

Statement:

          I'm interested in geometry, analysing things from different perspectives and realising the construction of 3-dimensional sculptures from my original drawings. Influenced by Minimalism and elements of Art Deco design, I work with a combination of materials such as wood, acrylic sheets and aluminium to create aesthetically interesting pieces which display attention to detail and craftsmanship.
