‘Animal life fascinates me, it is my main source of inspiration, their forms, be they of ‘fur and feather or beak and claw’ constantly intrigue me.

For this I use wire and other materials in a way that allows me greater freedom to add changes whenever I want during the construction to keep the feeling fluid and to reflect the diversity of movement and form.
 I increasingly use recycled and discarded materials as I enjoy the challenge of transforming something with a past history into something new and exciting.

I attended Morley College of Art in the late 70s where I studied Life drawing under Maggie Hambling and John Bellany. In the late 80s I attended Richmond College to study Sculpture under Avril Vellacott, but the most influential of my mentors was Mary Orrom, an inspired and inspiring sculptor, based in Great Missenden, Bucks.’
