My work arises from the multiple roles, activities and environments of everyday life, and references geology, abjection, motherhood and the body. Literally drawing in, into and on the physical environment, my mark-making develops the interrelation of sculpture, found object and artist with the material world. Repetitive impulses and orderly tendencies register externally in my methods, imagery, form and process. Associating this with the balance of control and uncontrolled, conscious and unconscious, innate and attained, led the path of my research to Neuroscience. I am concerned with what really happens, in terms of physiology and cognition, when we make or respond to art and the universality of 'art as behaviour'. Unconditioned reflexes, common to the human species, are proven to account for some universal qualities of aesthetic appreciation and I seek this intercultural visual language, unbound by specific time, place or social order.
