Going Places

My body of work makes up a celebratory community of figures and animals, freeze framed in the midst of a drama. I use diverse materials, from soft clay and billows of cloth to spiky wire and hard metal, choosing whatever suits the piece I am working on.

It’s the ones I dream about that make it to the plinth. With 19 sketch books and 3D doodles of potential sculptures. Working with determined bursts of energy, I create those which demand to be made.

The sculptures have strong silhouettes, drawing you closer, into an intimacy with each one.
