History

History:‘I have been making sculpture since leaving Brighton College of Art in 1985 although before that I trained briefly as a taxidermist. I have always been fascinated by animal forms. Since developing into a sculptor I have realised that my interests lay also in the tactile nature of materials and forms. I have also wanted to express a sense of the inner self, simple contentment, not wanting, not striving but just being. Carving as a simple repetitive act of work is also important, there is a direct connection with the solid physical world. Working with the public through workshops and residencies has been central to my practice, I enjoy sharing my skills and watching other people create, develop and achieve. Making sculpture for public sites has also been important as I have been able to explore new environments , both natural and man made . It has broadened my outlook and diversified the range of sculptural forms.’
