I have used various materials, techniques and processes and often use the casting technique and make moulds which are then cast with cement, acrylic co-polymer or bronze. When I am not making sculptures I like to carve linocuts which I hand print without a press. This process feels sculptural and my images are figurative in form and narrative in rendition.
The recent crushed aluminium and cast polymer sculptures are comments on the use of plastic and chemicals in our environment. My aim is to transform real-life events into positive artworks whilst highlighting the contradictions and paradoxes in life.
