My sculpture takes the human form as its starting point and its tool.
My point of departure is not an idiosyncratic impulse but a reflection, a thought fuelled by my interest in new philosophical questions, medical information or psychological studies.
I am drawn to the visceral nature of sculpture, how it can occupy a space - change the feel of the space it occupies. My work is derived from research and exploration into the human condition and our possible futures.
I have a classical approach to the manipulation of materials and look to use craft to help draw and engage the viewer to experience the sculpture or installation.
