ARTIST STATEMENT
I’ve had a little obsession with ambidexterity since I was a small child so it wasn’t completely out the blue when at 19 years old I picked up two pens and started to draw. Something just clicked. My brain switched on in a new way and I have been exploring symmetry drawing ever since.

“Spontaneous Symmetry” engages both hemispheres of the brain. It creates a balanced, happy meditative state. It has become part of my daily practice. I use it as a way to connect to my inner worlds, to listen to my body and give expression to things ordinarily unseen.
