Category: Sculpture
My principal work and passion is stone carving. Using mainly Cornish Polyphant stone and Dorset limestones, I create fluid forms which invite tactile journeys. Although not directly figurative or representational, the pieces explore different moods and qualities such as poise, protection, expectancy, inspiration, dialogue and expansion. The sculptures aim to be housed in dwellings and landscapes where they can stand with a quiet presence and dignity, addressing the imagination of the viewer. Complementary to my sculptural work, I produce prints, predominatly collagraph reliefs, rich in texture and subtle in colour. Sometimes I explore ideas for potential scupltures, and other times I enjoy the tactile substance of the printing templates themselves, allowing them to burst out of the confines of a recatangular frame or to be cut and divided into jigsaws of simple sculptural shapes. I am a member of the South West Sculptors Association and the Double Elephant Print Workshop. I currently work from the Clay Door Studio in Chudleigh where I offer creative classes in various media and welcome visitors to the studio.
