Destiny Destination tells the story of our travels through life.
This mosaic is sculptural — the surface the trilobites travel across has hills and valleys. Their paths are rough in front of them but smoothed by their passing. Found metal and slabs of jasper stone form barriers that the trilobites work their way around undaunted.
I make things because my demons won't give me any peace until I make something for us – mosaics, sculpture, drawings, books, stickers, furniture, tools...
I sell some of what I make, sometimes... when I can let go of it.
Often the work I sell is work created especially for a person. Commissions, pieces created as a collaboration between us, something that takes shape in our minds during a number of conversations, eventually making its way out into the physical world. Other times people just see something I've made and want to have it.
Books and stickers I just make, in large numbers. People buy them if they like them.
