Sticks ‘n’ Stones statement:

Series of 9 works – The issue of identity often figures prominently in my work. Personal history and social influences, matter as much to me as talent and professional training. In Wales, the traditions and sensibilities of our Celtic ancestors frequently surface in contemporary artwork. Sticks ‘n Stones, is derived from the song that children often sing in retaliation when they are being bullied in the school playground.
