Much of my work is inspired by natural, organic forms. As I try to find their essential energy and expression, my sculptures often take on a life of their own, assuming varying degrees of human gesture and emotion. At other times, I look directly to the human figure, but remain fascinated by the search for abstraction rather than representation.
My sculptures are largely about mood and movement: sometimes a gentle flow of line and planes reflecting quiet contemplation; at other times trying to capture the boisterous ‘joie de vivre’ of dancing forms. The strong, dramatic shapes can be resonant of earlier 20th century traditions but with a lighter, more modern twist and uplifting energy. Please visit my website to see more.
I work with a variety of clays, then either cast the final sculptures in my studio using metal resin and acid finishes, or have them cast in foundry bronze.
I exhibit regularly, particularly in the South East.
