I am a sculptor who works primarily within the direct approach. I work the material, without pre- moulding or casting. My raw materials are sheets of steel or aluminium which I shape towards the desired end. I am drawn towards simplicity in form and the idea of stating an idea with minimum fuss.
I find inspiration in many things. Contemporary Jewellery, the Architecture of our time, the natural world, automobile design, and contemporary design.
I am also interested in the idea of fragmentation, of form, movement and implied movement in sculpture. How do you alter the static nature of sculpture, and make it come alive?
