After studying Graphic Design to degree level, l now have over thirty years experience as an artist. A large proportion of that time was spent in the animation industry; set building and prop making for children’s puppet animation series such as ‘Fireman Sam’. (BBC TV)
My work is thoughtful, haunting, and evocative – sculptures of people and creatures… Curious and unusual.
I have always been intrigued by the human form, especially faces. I strive to find the very essence of the model and inject that quality into the sculpture: a wry smile, a pensive look…
I sculpt my subjects in clay and the finished works are moulded and cast in a variety of resins, exploring the boundaries of portraiture in its traditional sense. I present ideas that subvert the familiar nature of convention, aiming for a more abstract outcome.
