My work follows a tradition of sculptural object making where craftsmanship and hand finishing remain important. I use a range of media including bronze, Cor-ten steel, oak and mosaic. A range of techniques are also employed in the production of my art. I am interested in the repeated forms found within diverse natural elements, linking the microscopic with the monumental. I often use mathematics in the construction and planning of my forms. I do not seek to copy nature, rather to absorb, filter and create something new from the things I have seen and the experiences I have had.
I like to be playful in my work and am drawn to quirkiness.

I find the processes of conception, growth, flux and evolution endlessly fascinating and seek to capture something of the wonder and power of nature in my artwork. My intention is to create objects which are enigmatic and invite inquiry.
