"My main area of creative focus is in sculpture, and more particularly in fabricating woven wire forms which sometimes reference local craft traditions [...] In my sculptures I use images of natural phenomena (human, plant and animal) and play with the idea of mutation, hybrids and reconfiguring the familiar. Through dramatically enlarging and/or transposing features of one to the other, I play with the paradox between vulnerability and the monstrous. Using the language of craft, my artworks are always a product of labour and time."1 – Walter Oltmann
