‘Altered States’ is a collection of mixed media assemblages using beach detritus. Already altered by time, the weather and the sea this is further altered to become a composition - a seascape, landscape, an abstract surface - juxtaposing light and dark, colour and texture.

Materials are twisted, wrapped, threaded, pulled, sewn, frayed, bound, squashed, cut, burnt, ground down, melted and altered to take on a new form

Recurring themes include layering, overlapping, the act of looking through.

Often the work evolves from a particular found item; often it reflects a sense of place.
