I love making art, and enjoy exploring a wide variety of mediums and processes, working across several disciplines.
Working mainly in wire, my sculptural works explore a wide variety of differing processes, from the solidity of ciment fondu to creating delicate ‘wire drawings’. My inspiration comes from the countryside and nature. Making animals and quirky birds that celebrate the amazing creatures we share our world with. I sometimes use bright, unrealistic colours in my work, to bring a smile and challenge convention. As a collector of sea-glass, and discarded or broken metal items, I have begun incorporating these into some of my pieces.
My fibre-art and mixed media pieces are taking me on another journey, exploring different styles of mark-making and creating. Inspired hugely by the sea and the colour blue, I am developing series of vessels and wall pieces.
The individual outcomes of using different materials and techniques is exciting and challenging, as often the spirit of the piece finds its own voice through the process.
By taking part in exhibitions across the UK, I now have work in collections in Britain, Europe, the USA and New Zealand. Art is the major part of my life, as well as working in graphic and publishing design, and art direction of illustration and photography.
