                                 The Found Object

I start my assemblages by looking over the objects I have found and saved over the years. The mystery or value of these simple, humble things inspires my creativity.

My eye falls on some wooden chair legs that I keep in a box in my studio. I then notice some miniature toys scattered across the floor. I know that something unites these seemingly unrelated objects. What could it be?

This is how my work begins. I dig for the connection - the meaning that will bring my abandoned orphans home.

I uncover many fantastic or poetic tales in the process.

Found objects make my work very physical and tactile.
My instinctive use of colour transforms them and gives them new life.
