As a sculptor I find drawing is the cornerstone of my practice. Sculpture combines a glorious mixture of science, play and the search for form. My practice derives from a purity born of drawing, where one has to refine and limit the information that goes into a drawing or painting, to best communicate the essence of the love or interest that one has in the subject, and this is especially so when sculpting.
I love to work with anything I have to hand. Everything can make marks and I find that experimentation lends a happy and random coincidence to my work which gives a certain liveliness to it. Since lockdown I have discovered oils and acrylics, which are a whole new wonderful world to explore.
My life has led me to working with wood, stone, clay, pigment and words. During my student years I immersed myself in the historic arts of carving, gilding and polychrome finishes. With these skills I enjoy the challenge of creating in a multitude of ways, which keeps me, and my work, fresh and exciting. I live in Devon and am also a wife, mother, drawing tutor and author.
