My time in nature, chance encounters and connections spark my inspiration for each animal sculpture.
It’s not simply a case of observing and record taking, it’s a feeling and emotion on a much deeper level. It’s my intention to channel those feelings and emotions into each piece.
This is why no two sculptures will ever be the same – they are as individual as the animal and the encounter we shared, meaning every sculpture is a one-off piece of fine art.
I often take my camera with me on walks and so I usually have some reference photos to help me bring the piece to life, so I’ll set up the sculpture stand and photos and start to shape and form the clay using a variety of hand-building techniques.
