My work focuses on investigating the relationship between order in complex geometric patterns and a sense of visual comfort.

My research is based on the concept of fractal geometry.  This mathematical theory proves that every organic structure is made out of simple units called fractals, which are then multiplied, in various sizes, to create the larger body. This concept calls into question Chaos theory - it brings order to elements of nature that we previously considered irregular or variable, in effect, chaotic.

I am also looking at the movement, rhythm and harmony within structure and pattern.

This current body of work includes glass, metal and card.
