Lifecaster and sculptor based in Mid Wales Borders near Oswestry

I am a sculptor working on pieces - derived from lifecasts and incorporating natural forms either by three dimensional carving or painted or both!

My work represents a complete change in direction from my previous art which was quite small scale and i relish the challenges and new opportunities it presents.

Formerly my work was as a painter (oil and watercolour), etcher, wood engraver and illustrator. I was an Associate Royal Society of Miniature Painters, Sculptors and Gravers. Member of Hilliard Society, and member of Artists and Designers in Wales (AADW).

In the 1980s I exhibited at The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours, Royal Society of Miniature Painters, Sculptors and Gravers, Society of Wood Engravers.

Moving from 2 dimensional media to three dimensions has brought with it a number of thrilling and fascinating challenges both technically and artistically.

Principle amongst my aims is the integration of 2 dimensional imagery into 3 dimensional form – an idea of “landscape in the body” rather than “body in the landscape”. I am currently developing a theme incorporating imagery from Welsh and other Native Mythology.
