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