'My principle interest is in form and line, it's endless possibilities to calm, excite or surprise the eye whilst always being a uniquely physical encounter.

Whether working closely to the human form or exploring more abstract relationships, the process of both modelling in clay and carving in stone is at once intensely enjoyable and deeply engaging. It can seem almost a process of meditation within which a more intuitive and distantly familiar set of rules apply.

I feel proud to be working within the figurative tradition; it can span cultures, connect us with our ancestors and hopefully be intelligible to generations to come.'
