I like my work to have simple clean lines and take my inspiration from nature. I do not try to capture exact detail in my work but rather the movement and memory associated with the subject. In general I like it when a client ascribes their own memory to a piece of my work. I think a piece of work is successful when the clients tells you that the sculpture reminds them of a event or a person in their life, it becomes an object of association for them.
My work is the result of a lifetime of “making” I like the craft aspect of what I do and have honed the skills of working with metal for more than thirty five years. Working in bronze is a joy, the material is very responsive to being worked and it takes well to fine finishing. My studio is a fully equipped workshop and foundry where I can realise my work from concept to the finished piece.
