Sculpture is such a versatile and rewarding environment to be involved in. The fact that there are so many ways of to use materials can be so freeing as well as giving you an "option paralysis" that can leave you stumped with what to do next. 

My pieces draw on the wealth of options and then focuses on mainly figurative, object based, mixed media sculpture. The focus is on materiality and innovation, leaving the narrative aside and opening up the possibilities to a more versatile and wider interpretation of the object.
