Artist Statement

Transforming industrial sheets of aluminium into minimalist two-dimensional works of art, enriched by accents of 24 carat gold leaf and/or Pindan pigments, is a fascinating challenge. I achieve contrast in tone by offsetting blank against etched and distressed monochromatic surfaces. My inspirations are manifold.
