Biography

The physicality of sculpture, from the making process to the finished work, plays and integral part in shaping my practice. Environmental and architectural elements, along with material properties, aesthetic qualities and the manipulation of scale, are all important factors in my work. My public commissioned work has a strong connection to site and context, while my gallery work deals increasingly with notions of real and imagined space. Themes of duality and opposition are used to examine the tension between the built environment and the natural world. In addition, the relationship between public and private, personal and shared space is used to explore my relationship with the modern urban environment.
