Results for- Diving into the ocean of life - 1 of 2 (2).jpeg

My sculptures draw on my love of figurative expression and have always represented my vision and spirit of merging memory, wonder and joy.

Each sculpture explores form, texture and colour as layers are built up, producing a narrative within the piece, creating a dialogue for the viewer to explore their own emotions and stories.

‘…it is a reflection on the idea of life’s journey as a complex layer of comfort and chaos, strength and fragility, authenticity and vulnerability.’


...'“The main thing is to be moved, to love, to hope, to tremble, to live.” ~ Auguste Rodin

Recalling the childlike feeling of possibilities & cherishing the forgotten simplicity of living each day full of simple pleasures.

Taking time to breathe.  Taking time to play.  Taking time to enjoy.

Inspired to create characters that embody energy, life and love.
My wish is that these sculptures, will bring inspiration and joy. 
 
Exhorting us to embrace all that life has to offer.

I love telling a story, through a sculpture’s personality and character. From the expression of their figure and natural curves, to their face, stance and movement. 

My passion is in evidence in my art and has always represented my slightly quirky and humorous spirit vision of life.  

As an artist, nothing makes me happier than seeing someone connect and smile with my work.

There’s no better feeling than when we experience a lift of our spirit. When captured, that exquisite moment can transcend our external environment.
