I make sculpture of people, animals and unusual creatures, which I use as metaphors to tell an internal narrative. I work with great consideration, integrity and humour, and I communicate through direct visual impact and shared emotive response. I aim to create sculpture that is exciting and moving, and which speaks to an audience who is interested in engaging with areas of deeper significance within our lives.
The original sculpture is modelled in wax and then cast as a limited edition into a vibrant British-made eco-resin, which creates an aesthetic that keeps the beautiful translucent qualities of the wax, while remaining accessible to a wide audience.
