Artist Statement

Thirty plus years as a practising artist and you learn a thing or two.  You learn that not everything you do is good; it is therefore a wonderful moment when all the elements that have been separate suddenly unite to form a tangible cohesive whole.


I have a passionate love for brightly coloured, vivid abstract painting and a desire to create work that connects with the space it is standing in.  Naturally sculpture fulfils some of that desire and I have always been drawn to painters who use colour intensely; as a sculptor I have this desire to draw my experiences of these paintings into my work.  Artists like Patrick Heron, Howard Hodgkin, Frank Stella and many others have influenced the shape and colour of my work; sculpture definitely, paintings in space perhaps.


The underlying narrative is the human experience, every piece an expression of emotion – intensely personal and yet universally appealing to the broadest audience.


I make sculptures from a wide range of materials with particular expertise in wood and metal. My work ranges from large-scale public commissions to galleried exhibitions. Recent works are made from assembled hard woods, cut and reassembled into their final form and selectively painted to create stunning imagery. I select the materials I use in response to my desire to inform and create each piece, choosing materials carefully to give the work its individual narrative.


I wish to deepen my expression and creativity, holding the legacy and creative influences that I draw on in my practice, finding stimulation in the new and novel whilst maintaining the passion, integrity and individuality I apply to all my work.
