I am interested in the aesthetic of densely packed and richly coloured arrangements and displays found in shops, markets and museums. Systems of ordering, classification and coding are applied in the development and generation of work. Boundaries are established, which determine both what is collected and where it is collected from. I continually search for and collect coloured objects ranging throughout the spectrum. Only purely coloured objects are gathered, disallowing any items that were made of more than one colour. I am concerned with the psychological influence of colour, its effect and sensory impact upon the viewer.
