I am a full-time artist making figurative hand-built ceramic sculptures and limited editions. My subject matter is our relationship with the animal world, the inspiration coming from a love of nature and art, and European folk stories.
I try to make the shapes of my animal sculptures as simple as possible. I adhere to the principle less is more. The style is bold and semi-abstract with graceful sweeping curves and simplified details.
