Concepts The majority of my sculptures are directly carved in wood. I work with rhythmic forms based on universal patterns of movement found in the natural world. The focus of my work is humanities relationship with nature, celebrating our links with the dynamic cycle of the seasons and exploring thresholds on the life journey. The main body of my work over the past fifteen years has been creating site specific work for the rural and urban landscape, both in Britain and on the continent. In summer 2000 I was invited to Japan to receive the international Enku award in recognition of my work to date. Influences Environmental, nature, culture, myth, installation, ice, wood, fire, drawing, metaphorical, abstract.
