Portrait sculptor of humans & animals… curious & unusual

My art unravels portrait sculpture, captured and recreated with a porosity and fragility. The resulting works can be unsettling, haunting, beautiful but always subtly peppered with personality.

About me

Sculpting with clay, each work gradually takes on its own life form. Discover more about my process.

Lovely whispers of people’s existence

I am intrigued by faces, both human and animals, which in many ways are incredibly similar…

With each sculpture, I strive to capture the spirit and personality of my subject, injecting that essence into the clay. What is the magical ingredient that makes it ‘them’?

I am an established professional portrait sculptor based in Totnes, South Devon. I create sculptures, cast in resin and often combined with other materials such as iron, jute and reclaimed metal.
