Statement : 

I am inspired by a moral upbringing and ethical consciousness, fascinated by the question “How do humans behave?”  Experience in the fragility of life has informed the exploration.

Through the medium of sculpture I explore the tenuous relationship between our inner fragile and outer confident self. The flaws that are inherent in all of us, and how we survive despite all of these, fascinate me.  Isolation, superficiality, insecurity, imperfection, frailty, ambition, self-assuredness, strength and the combination of these emotional states are most attractive, it is after all our whole selves that make us beautiful.

For when we are alone, scared and unsure of ourselves, that's when our true humanity shines through.

 I interpret this through an illustrative baroque style, recreating the human form in passionate dynamic shapes, offsetting them, using balance, posture, place and space to write unscripted stories and make precarious scenarios.

I Spirit
I sacrificed so much, to transform my life into one that is as beautiful as the dreams that danced in my imagination.

Bio: 

I obtained a first class honors degree in Fine Art from Nottingham Trent University, 1996, and undertook postgraduate studies at Loughborough University, where my tutors included John Atkin FRBS and Dan Archer FRBS.

I have worked on large-scale sculptures 4 meters high and at a more intimate scale 30 cm in mixed media. Inspiration comes from the dynamic movements and resulting shapes produced by the human body particularly from athletes and dancers. Currently working in bronze I like to place figurative forms in precarious positions using strong geometric steel shapes as supports.

A multi award-winning sculptor (‘Mind Body Spirit’ International Art – Competition.net, Best in show, APT Deptford 2015, by Richard Deacon CBE), I sell through various gallery platforms in the UK, The Netherlands, Singapore and USA and work also to commission.

More recently I was commissioned by BBC1 and Netflix to produce a sculpture (I Spirit), for the highly acclaimed drama entitled ‘Dracula’, which went on to feature in “I Weekend” with work by Barbara Hepworth and Banksy. In June 2021 I also won Gold Medal at Blenheim Flower show with Oxford Garden Design Company, and am currently commissioned to produce the sculptural centerpiece for the ‘Blue Peter’ garden, Chelsea Flower Show 2022.

Clients include : Juliet Sargeant, the BBC, Netflix, ‘The Robert T. Webb Sculpture Park’, (permanent collection), Georgia, USA, international art dealers, AK designs, Best and Lloyd Lighting Design Ltd. and various private clients.
