My work to date includes figurative and abstract forms, plus installations. Thriving on variety and experimentation, I work with both natural and found materials, plus vintage
and household goods. One aspect of sculpting that I particularly relish, is that I find the wide range of materials and processes keep me in a constant state of enquiry and
development –a perpetual student. This enables a rich, energised and exciting schedule. Completed works may include a playful element or comment on personal and shared human experiences and conditions. Depending on the concept, the sculptures are sometimes infused with channelled emotional energy; for example, my large scale mixed media work ‘Frustration’, which was created over a two year period and selected by judges for the 2015 Bentlif Open Art Prize exhibition.
Influences include the natural world, architecture, flea markets, contemporary dance and performance art, plus fashion photography; in particular, the work of photographer Guy Bourdin. As a keen amateur photographer, I delight in connecting with both urban
and natural environments, the bizarre, the overlooked, plus textures and forms.
I have continued my professional development via learning traditional and contemporary sculpting techniques and processes. Recently I’ve been working on small scale mixed media images, plus finding dynamic ways to convey my own personal life experiences through three dimensional form.
