How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

A blend of traditional and contemporary practice. I am intrigued by process, interaction, participation, abstraction, relatedness of things, and the possibilities of commenting on current issues. Somehow It all fits together.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

Freedom of thought and expression. Engagement with line, shape, colour, texture, materiality and the way they can capture observations of natural and mechanical forms on paper and in 3D.

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

Contemporary visual artist

Your practice & activities include e.g workshops, teaching: 

Often an idea is the first thing in my practice, and developing and presenting it may use drawing, painting, 3D, photography, printing, installation or some kind of event. I don’t teach on a regular basis, but sometimes offer drawing workshops or short courses.
