I have used my 25 years of teaching experience, as the stimulus for my explorations. My work is conceptual and issue based, where the idea and how it develops, being the most significant, taking precedence over the aesthetics of my finished pieces.
My recent work has focused on teaching methods, conformity and the role a pupil plays in the success of a school. These are some of the features of contemporary society, which most of us have come to accept as an inevitable component of modern life.
My work seeks to have an impact on the audience and invites them to contemplate, generate debate, reflect and question the process our children become part of when they enter into school.
