Artist Statement:

“What has interested me, is not so much the single form, as that form in relationship to another.

I first became aware of this during life drawing at Corsham, how the curves of shoulders., arms, knees etc. related to shapes around them. The curves of a shoulder to the straight line of a wall. The rocks on the cliffs that sit on one another or lie next to one another or have been split by frost.

Going up and down the coast while fishing, looking ashore and seeing the huge boulders that have fallen and cracked, the weight of these rocks.

All these things you try to portray but like the things I made as a child, they are never good enough and when one is finished it is put to one side and the next one will be better.”
