My work is best described as ‘up-cycling’. I’m driven by ‘the need to put things out of context’. I use pre-owned vintage and antique objects and transform them by totally altering their use turning them into bespoke lamps and home-ware, giving them a new lease of life. It’s the hoarder in me not wanting to see good things go to waste or no longer appreciated. I aim to inspire happy memories in people looking at my work – that sense of ‘I remember that, my.. used to have one of those’. I’m also keen to elicit a sense of, ‘Wow, I would not have thought of that’.
