Statement

I have been making sculpture for 24 years following my BA(HONS) at Sheffield Hallam University. I have worked on many commissions and have conducted workshops for all ages.

My work is very robust, I make it this way because I want it to last. I want my work to be an asset to me rather than something that comes back to haunt me so I use materials that are more than adequate for the site of installation. 

My sculptural background and techniques allow me to develop mosaics in 3D which I find very exciting.

I am currently making work for exhibitions as well as working on commissions.

Making my work is the most enjoyable thing, it sounds silly but I often dance in the studio because I am so happy when I am making.
