"My recent work explores the connection between colour and shape, taking inspiration from colour theory, colour connotations and visual literacy. I investigate Kandinsky's Bauhaus ideology, whereby colours and shapes are intrinsically linked: a square was always associated with the colour red, a circle with the colour blue and a triangle with the colour yellow. Using this restrained palette, I create bold, graphic forms that play with positive and negative space. When removing a section of a shape, I counter this by building up other areas to highlight the negative space.
Vitreous enamel allows me to achieve fantastic colours which I contrast with simple oxidised silver settings. The surface finish of the enamel is important, as a gloss or matt finish can really change the quality of the enamel colour. The relationship between colour and form continues to inspire my work."
