Sculpture and 2D works using a variety of materials: glass, wood and metal.
I work in steel and create unique sculptures of animals and abstract pieces. Inspiration is drawn from nature, and a fascination for movement, fluidity, lightness and texture. Humour also plays an important part in the creation process, which hopefully is revealed in my work. For me, metal has still an element of surprise and adaptability is crucial. Scale can vary from small items to life-size artwork.
