My art practice is influenced by many things (I have a magpie brain and tend to collect and store ideas for later use), but chiefly it is informed by ideas and reflections upon childhood, play, half-remembered folk tales, and what it is to be human. My pieces tell stories. Sometimes light-hearted, sometimes unsettling or melancholy, I aim to capture character and a suggestion of private thoughts. Sometimes my figures disguise themselves as animals. Occasionally they are caught in the act of transformation; half human, half beast…
I work mainly in clay and mixed media but also in bronze resin and occasionally foundry bronze.
I divide my time between sculpting and printmaking, teaching and freelance curatorial projects.
