I was educated at St Paul’s School, London and Harrow School of Art. I work with wood, found objects and composite media, but bronze is my favourite medium. My work is almost entirely figurative, strongly influenced by the myth and folklore of the British Isles, and exploring our relationships with each other and our place in the universe: “at a fundamental level we are all made of the same stuff; as each other, the birds and beasts, the trees and the rocks, and the stars.”
I have shown in London, Amsterdam and Rome as well as regularly in the West Midland and Border region.
This submission to “Reflections”.
I had already made this piece as part of a new direction I am exploring, referring back to an inherited æsthetic. Now I am finding that, in these extraordinary times, I have no clear response – my reflections have been confused, both about pandemics and about people’s widely different responses to them. I find myself as much much bewildered as anxious.
And I realised that this piece says that all that, even if I had not intended it to.
