Artist Statement

There is something quite remarkable about children and stories. I think its because

the imagination of a child has no boundaries – it is tremendously limitless. Children

live in a wonderful world of make believe and for a short fleeting time cherish

childhood characters bound in books as their closest companions. For some of us, as

we age and grow these close friends are slowly packed away in boxes, placed on

shelves; the memories of them slowly disappearing just as the colourful pages in

which they live too begin to fade with time. I suppose I am not like most, for the days

lived in the pages of my favourite books are still as bright and clear as they were in

my young wanderings. For me, the characters of my childhood are not limited to

pages in books, but also exist in the birch trees in my parent’s back yard, and the

fine chipped china in my grandmother’s kitchen cabinet.  To me, these are all

representations of humble narratives. The delicate details of my childhood, and

romantically optimistic view of the world around me has led me to the core of my artistic

practice – exploring narrative through the use of everyday ceramic objects and mixed media.
