Inspired by nature coastlines, and the beautiful countryside that surrounds me, I became an avid collector of pebbles and flints, feathers, gnarled wood, etc., finding a life force within them that fascinated and excited me.  

I was fortunate to become involved in a small selective sculpture group, run by an amazing lady called Mary Orrom. She watched over us, always letting us create in a non-structured way, suggestively giving us guidance when needed, letting us find a way through play, experimentation, and laughter. I worked in a range of sculptural mediums, cement fondue, wire, recycled metals, clay, natural windfalls, and stones, this helped me to harness my instinctive ability to create sculptural forms. These week group meetings lasted 17yrs, sadly, Mary has now departed us and I continue to host the group at my home.

In 2010, I had a wonderful opportunity to work with an established sculptor who was one of Henry Moore technicans, who guided and mentored me in the art of carving for 3 years , which gave me the knowledge and freedom to recreate my smaller Marquette's, and found objects into large scale sculptural forms. The large carved sculptural forms that I create now are the beginning of the process leading to cast resin/bronze sculptures.

I have sold my work to private collector's international.
