I create abstract sculptures in a range of sizes and materials. I particularly like making large pieces for garden settings. I work in the abstract because it allows me to express what I feel about line, surface and volume, uncluttered by any need to create a copy of anything. My work is, however, usually based on nature, very often tiny discarded objects whose elegance is revealed when developed on a much larger scale. This often gives rise to a series of similar pieces of different sizes, which can be tailored to a particular client’s setting. These sometimes contain echoes of human form...

I am a figurative sculptor with a keen interest in animals. By studying their behaviour I try to capture the essence of their character through a particular pose. I like to experiment with new materials and transform recycled car windscreen glass into sensual female forms. My sculptures are available in foundry cast bronze or resin.

Heather’s sculptural work is enlivened by the human body. She explores how light and reflection from the surface of the skin rests on the figure. The illusive skin transformed into planes of light alters the surface, to create her abstracted figures. Heather’s material choices are never simple, she uses a cementious polymerised resin together with graded carving stones, recrystallized carbonate minerals such as calcite, dolomite and limestones and metamorphic rocks. She continues to analyse the range of stone that is available both regionally and worldwide and the processes to find the...

  My sculptures are inspired by the natural environment, being described as manmade nature or ‘fake nature’. They are intentionally non-confrontational, blending in with their organic environment, enhancing and transforming a space creating a unobtrusive natural scene. They leave the audience at leisure to pass through at will, providing a source of escapism. The motivation behind the installation “Mycelium Major and Minor” was described as “Underneath the undergrowth ideas spread as spores, creating canopies to explore…” For Wisley 2015 the sculptures on the rockery extend this theme,...

After 40 years in the Aircraft Industry I was offered Redundancy so I took the leap and tried something different. Quite by accident I discovered I really love working with wood and it took over my life. I sculpt with hand tools using many different woods creating very tactile pieces that delight the viewer and beg to be touched. I was lucky enough to be invited to exhibit in local Exhibitions and Galleries (indoor and out) with great encouragement from well known artists that I have been fortunate enough to meet along the way . I love to use the grains and colours of the wood to enhance the...
