Chapter one discusses the role of craft in my art practice, and the strengths and weaknesses of such an approach. The next chapter centres around the idea that art can be a simple process of stripping away the detritus that prevents us from seeing, as a child might see, that all matter, all 'things', are invested with a strange vibrant aura. Chapter three looks at how my practice emphasises process and could be considered as a kind of three-dimensional drawing practice. From here I take a different tack and examine the symbolic importance of knots within my art (and life) before I return in the final chapter to a more conventional examination of the role the body plays within my artwork.
