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

My work is predominantly figurative and representational, but the representation is just the vehicle. What I am exploring and investigating is how to connect with the emotional response of the viewer. Whilst making a piece I am consciously trying to understand the emotions that I am having towards it. Hoping for a similar dialogue and emotional response from the viewer.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

I come from a family of artists and craftspeople. My great, great, grandfather was a wrought iron gate maker, my grandfather was a woodcarver who trained at Kensington School of Art, my mother studied fashion design, my father was a landscape designer and gardener. Making and drawing is in my bones. I have trouble thinking of anything else to do but make things!

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

I am a figurative sculptor, working mostly in clay, wax and plaster. I make work both for the garden and the home. Casting my work into iron resin, bronze resin, stone and bronze.

CV & Education, relevant & leading to your artistic practice: 

I completed my art foundation at Cambridge College of Technology under the inspiring tutorage of the sculptor Mike Gilespie, Epstein's former assistant.

I then studied at Camberwell of Art in the early ’80s where I was lucky to be one of the last students to receive traditional formal training in figurative sculpture.

Exhibitions in the last 3 years: 

I exhibit in various galleries across the midlands and west country. I also exhibit in up to 10 country garden shows across the UK each year.
