‘ The human figure plays a central part in my making, I spend a lot of time observing and drawing movement, posture, strength, spirit and individuality’
‘I generally make original pieces in clay and then cast into bronze using lost wax casting methods, I also cast found objects into wax and model the waxes into a form, ready to cast into bronze’.
