I am a sculptor based in the New Forest in Hampshire specialising in African big game, mostly the big cats, and cheetahs in particular. I am also interested in the British wildlife here in the New Forest where I have found abundant and fascinating sculpture opportunities.
I am particularly interested in the muscle structure of the animals I sculpt and I aim to make them come to life for the viewer: the lion, top predator and deadly; the leopard, always the opportunist killer; the cheetah, ever watchful and a speed machine; and wild dogs, the clever strategists that almost never misses their prey.
I use photographs I have taken in Africa, where I worked with cheetah and wild dog conservation, and also life study wherever possible.
My work is nearly always representational because this is what brings an animal to life for me.
I have sold internationally and I have exhibited widely in Britain. I occasionally accept commissions.
