How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

I love working in Clay and then I discovered Bronze - such a versatile material that is able to extend the feel of shape and form and then the secrets of the patination and the final revelation of the finished work

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

To share my love and interpretation of Nature

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

I am a Sculptor - brought up on a Farm with a degree in Botany and Zoology with an admiration for the myriad forms and complexities found in Nature ! and I love working in different materials which have their own relevant characteristics which then goes on and reveals itself in the final work ! - Further working in the Abstract allows one to dig down to expose the bare facts of the subject !

PreCovid I had Weekly sculpture sessions with various Artists at my Studio

Exhibitions in the last 3 years:
