Sculpted portraits and figures are at the heart of my artistic practice, whether they are to commission or not. Currently I am completing a 7ft 4in bronze of Sir Nigel Gresley, the eminent railway engineer responsible for the record-breaking steam locomotives The Flying Scotsman and The Mallard. The statue will be unveiled on the Western Concourse at King’s Cross Station on the 5 April 2016, 75 years after Sir Nigel’s death.
I exhibit in London galleries and across the South of England and beyond, being fortunate to have received prestigious awards, including from the Society of Portrait Sculptors and the Society of Women Artists (SWA). I am on the Council of the SWA and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. I have also had the privilege of being the sculptural advisor to the Hove Plinth project from its inception (an initiative of the Hove Civic Society). I live in Brighton but my main studio is in Billingshurst. I enjoy teaching portraiture at the Sussex Sculpture Studios and Phoenix Brighton, and undertaking ‘masterclasses’ in London at the Art Academy and Morley College.
