  • Artist’s Statement

    I work predominantly in bronze as I find sculpting in clay enables me to get great definition & also subtlety. I worked as a physio for many years and probably for that reason have a great appreciation of the human body.
    It is a wonderful challenge to sculpt people and imbuing my sculptures with character and soul has become my passion.
