I am originally from Yorkshire and now live and work in France.
My work reflects a fascination with texture: a weathered chunk of ancient oak, the patina of old bone or rusted metal, the delicate surface of a speckled eggshell.
I prefer to use natural materials in my work and have a penchant towards rusty metal which often leads me to the discovery of treasures hiding in plain site.
I also use man-made materials, particularly Formica, as an interesting counterpoise to the natural elements.
Invariably a found item will spark in me a concept to be incorporated into the final form of a sculpture, often accompanied by a whimsical, sometimes eccentric title.
