The language of patterns fascinate me endlessly, with each line, curve, symmetry and rhythm sharing ideas and stories.
I've spent a lifetime exploring pattern in all its variety and complexity, and will likely spend many more years in an ongoing mission to develop the skills that enable me to articulate this journey in visual form.
Much of my recent work serves as an ode to the decorative, a celebration of ornamental language in all its complexity.
The pieces represent the visualisation of my fascination with the minutiae detail of pattern, lines, curves, shapes and the symmetry that unites these elements.
My journey as a professional artist began with a splash of ink scanned onto a computer and the realization that depth and detail that I longed for but was unable to create by hand could be achieved digitally with the use of machines. Years later, I met a software engineer who showed me how far I could take the work using complex algorithms and custom developed tools.
Each piece may be an ode to ornament and to the crafts people of many centuries past, but it is also a homage to the incredible power of the machine to capture the content of my imagination and the endless potential in front of me.
