Figurative sculpture has been my passion since graduating from art college 30 years ago. Exploring shape, form and texture I create sculptures that represent and interpret the human form.
My expressive fragmented figures celebrate the strength and beauty of the female form. Through twisting, arching and stretching my forms express tension and energy capturing movement in clay.
I draw inspiration from ancient fragmented sculptures, using the torso as my main focal point. Historic figurative sculptures and paintings from a variety of cultures including Indian art have been a major source of inspiration to my work. Life drawing is intrinsic to my art and works hand in hand to support my three dimensional work. I live and work in Lewes, East Sussex where I also part time teach Art & Design at A Level.
