From my earliest experiments in art I have found the variety and beauty of the human form endlessly fascinating - for me the human element is vital.
It wasn't until I trained to teach in my mid twenties that I received any formal art training. It was then, whilst following a course in ceramic sculpture, that I became committed to 3D work.
In subsequent years whilst working as an English teacher and raising children, I kept my passion for sculpture alive, producing work in a variety of media - clay, wood, cold-casting, stone; always persisting with the life drawing which gave me my inspiration.
In 2011, I gained an honours degree in Materials Practice at Brighton University, specialising in metal and wood.
I now work from my Brighton-based studio, producing sculpture in a range of materials for sale, commission and exhibition.
