Statement

I search to create work which achieves an 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, cement and clay the clay and cement being cast in either bronze or resin, both in limited editions.
