I was born in Dewsbury in the West Riding of Yorkshire and currently live in Huddersfield West Yorkshire.
I have worked in engineering all my working life and graduated from Leeds College of Art and Design in 2016 with BA ( Hons ) in Fine Art.
My inspiration derives from an earlier era of truth to materials and an unashamed robustness in the three dimensional form.
All of my work strives to have that connection in some way with the human experience be it realistically portrayed with easily discernible references to the human form or semi abstract in its execution with only a hint of the human form.
I want my sculpture to have that imperceptible quality resonant in the form, space, colour and most importantly texture which radiates in the most subtle way the essence of life experience.
My main focus of attention at present is stone carving using Tadcaster limestone and casting in bronze.
The process of carving or modelling in clay for later casting in bronze is to me a meditative experience and my work is an attempt to convey the intangible sense of being a kind of other worldliness.
