Organic forms are still a primary influence and although colour has been extremely important in much of the work, of late it has been taking a less dominant role.  Enjoyment of shape and texture still prevail but an interest in the relationship between the piece and the stand it is displayed upon has evolved. Sculpted fruit forms sit on top of blocks with bowl shapes scooped out, the bowl becomes the stand and the stand becomes the bowl.  Functionality has become a secondary to the sculptural element.  Wood is bleached white to reflect the light and enhance the faceted finishes of the fruit producing quieter, stiller pieces.
