Artist Statement

I'm an emerging sculptor who lives and works in London. Working with various metals in all their contrasting properties of texture and finish, I enjoy the challenge of making the industrious material appear fluid, malleable and delicate.
After graduating from the European Arts Practice MA course at Kingston University I have continued to study different metals, looking at ways to manipulate and add movement to the material.
My work has been exhibited throughout the UK in over 20 shows; including locations like Burghley House (Lincolnshire), Great Fosters Hotel (Surrey) and Jean-Luc Baroni Gallery (London). Over the past 5 years I have had the honour of exhibiting alongside some of the worlds finest artists, including Helaine Blumenfeld, Jonathan Yeo, Tracey Emin and the late Lynn Chadwick.

In 2015 I was elected a member of The Royal British Society of Sculptors

My work is privately collected in the UK and the USA.
