Personal Statement

I have always wanted to have sculptures in our own garden, had ideas of my own and finally decided to develop some of those ideas and create my own pieces. The sculptures are very simple contemporary designs, almost two dimensional which probably reflects my training as a graphic designer and photographer.

My current sculpture work has evolved after many initial sketches and using illustration techniques learnt during my time as a graphic designer, I create the final designs which are then crafted from sheets of mild or stainless steel using the latest laser cutting technology.

Most of the sculptures are allowed to rust naturally. I love the rich warm hues of the rust patina that forms during the rusting process and seeing it evolve with time and glowing in the evening sun. For a more contemporary finish piece's can be crafted from stainless steel with a brushed or polished finish.

The sculptures make a real feature in the garden and are created in a variety of sizes, suitable for gardens both large and small. If you can't make it to Trail, please do get in touch, I always have a selection of sculpture on show.
