Ideas come from experience.
Time and energy give rise to sculpture.
Based in my studio in Gloucestershire, I make sculpture for exhibition and to commission. I work mainly with glass, using other materials when appropriate.
An impression, a question, an idea, these are always, my starting points. Working with words, the title for the piece emerges, modelling and drawing the form emerges.
Complex volumes, fine edges and points, perfect curves, a hidden point of balance, come together creating a moment of silence. Layers of mark making provide a language, challenging the boundaries between surface and internal volume. The form is the signifier, the language informs a history, both past, and yet to be played out.
The resulting work expresses my findings and raises new questions.
In 2000 I established a large well equipped studio with sculptor Sally Fawkes. This versatile space enables me to undertake projects of notable scale as well as smaller, intimate private commissions.
Exhibiting internationally and creating site specific work for interior and exterior locations, my work is found in public, corporate and private collections worldwide. Collections include M.A.V.A., Madrid, Spain, Mastercard, London, National Museums of Scotland, V & A London.
