I graduated in 2003 from Central Saint Martins College in London and since then I’ve been developing my art practice through sculpture and drawing. In 2006 I was offered a bursary membership of the Royal British Society of Sculptors and I am now an Associate Member. I am currently living and working in Northamptonshire and have shown work in London and across England.
I create sculptures which explore line and space rather than solidity and see all my work as multi-dimensional drawing. Working with metals and natural materials I use various techniques including ‘weaving’ with fine wires, bending and welding metal rods, and working with pine needles to create geodesic exoskeletal figures.
My art practice is inspired by the figure, nature and science. I am particularly interested in exploring the connections and dichotomies between our understanding of our world through quantum physics and our ancestors’ understanding of their world through mythology.
I am currently completing a further set of three Dancing Figures for the circle in Salcey Forest - this is an ongoing sculptural installation which is undertaken as and when I have time until the circle is complete. This group will bring the number of dancers to nine, all the current figures are based on me dancing, further groups will be modelled on friends and other interested people. This installation was inspired by a line drawing I created for the Myth:m-theory exhibition in London (November 2010) - I have set myself the discipline of creating each figure from a single line of 6mm mild steel rod.
