In recent years a lot of my work has been derived from found objects such as flint, coral and bone. Some work is more obviously inspired in this was than others. Eve I and III, in particular, are almost copies of the original piece of flint that I found, with some alterations to make the human resemblance clearer.Searching for the object is an exciting process in itself and I have had to spend many hours at West Wittering beach just looking for them.
The majority of my work conveys human feelings and expressions without actually being realistic human forms. This is where the challenge of work lies for me.
Occasionally I take on portrait commissions and enjoy working with a precision and accuracy that contrasts with the freedom of expression that I like to use on my more abstracted work.
I am always changing my work and experimenting with different ways of expression- it is interesting and challenging for me and stops my work feeling stagnant or repetitive.
