The universal law that energy cannot be created nor destroyed is where my work develops. Working within the paradigm of life, death and rebirth I incorporate dualities found in science, philosophy and spirituality. The mediums that I use also sit within this model, making my own materials from destruction or conversion of matter. I make my own paper from old books, magazines and ephemera and give life to forgotten images. I also make encaustic wax made from beeswax and damar resin, both substances created from nature. The combination of materials I use continues to grow and has resulted in a body of work that includes collage, sculpture, textiles and painting.
