My sculpture is figurative using space and gesture, usually in bronze or marble. It is about universal humanity, the thread that binds people together; that which remains constant over centuries. I use groups of figures in everyday situations, unconscious gestures and compositions; people relating to each other. The space between and around figures is as important as the figures themselves.
Please see my website for details, but recent public commissions include; a monument to The Merchant Navy, in Leith, memorials commemorating the Fishing Disaster 1881, Scotland, the gilded pear tree and 26 small figures for the Clore Learning centre, Hampton Court, and 230 figures depicting 50 years of performances, at The Hub, Edinburgh’s Festival Centre.
