My interest in making sculpture began in the late 90s, in particular on my first visit to Italy. Whilst staying in a small hilltop town, Casole d’Elsa in Tuscany, I discovered an art school which was run by English sculptor, Nigel Konstam, which I attended regularly for few weeks each year for the next seven years. I had taken some sculpture courses in the UK at The School of Art in Bristol but never before had I carved in Alabaster or worked in clay alongside such an inspiring tutor.
I continued to progress my sculpture over the years, attending course at Tout Quarry on Portland, carving in the local stone. Also, West Dean College, near Chichester, Bristol School of Art and Stoke Lodge, Bristol.
My clay and stone sculptures are mainly naturalist, figurative, often informed by life drawing classes and my own life experiences.
I have shown and sold my sculpture over the past twelve years on the North Bristol Arts Trail and then, for the past three years, on the BS9 Arts Trail. I also sell my sculptures through Coldharbour Gallery, Bristol.
