For me, Fine Art, painting and sculpture in particular, have always been a passion, and the use of traditional materials a real pleasure. I enjoy working in both 2 and 3 dimensions. The opportunity to share a ceramics studio some years ago finally brought me full circle and back to my roots. I have now been a full time artist and sculptor for around 15 years.
My subjects are often animal forms, or figures, these being semi-abstract.
I enjoy the freedom to create and develop my own interpretations and the challenge of
capturing the essence of a subject. My work is particularly tactile and focuses on
the transitions of line, surface and plane, often with with textured or polished accents.
The metal rich surfaces of my cast pieces often include bronze, iron, or aluminium. This offers further scope for patination and oxidation effects (find out more).
