I am a sculptor living and working in the North Pennines.
As a child I spent as much time as possible in the woods and fields near my home, exploring and drawing the creatures that lived within them, especially the animals and birds.
My sculpture comes from within me, and I have spent many years experimenting with different techniques and materials.
My work primarily stems from direct observation of the subject. The stylistic and constructional considerations are secondary to portraying the subject as honestly as I can. This is not to say that I strive to make my work realistic in the literal sense, instead I seek to capture that sense of awareness that is present in all living things.
