Statement

This year I have started working in stone, mostly soapstone, and have been really excited by the colour and character of the stone. This coupled with my residency in France as part of ‘The Inverarity One to One Travel Award’, has added to a whole new body of work.
A great deal of this work has been inspired by the long shadows you get in the south of France and the natural organic forms found in the surrounding landscape. I search to create work which achieves as similar emotional response. I am moved by simple forms, clean and void of any unnecessary components, sculpture sincere to its form, material and surface.
The process of creating has been a must for me for a very long time and the materials I use vary according to the task in hand, I work mostly in stone, wood, cement and clay the clay and cement being cast in either bronze or resin, both in limited editions.
