I am a sculptor working on pieces - derived from lifecasts and incorporating natural forms either by three dimensional carving or painted or both!
My work represents a complete change in direction from my previous art which was quite small scale and I relish the challenges and new opportunities it presents.
Formerly my work was as a painter (oil and watercolour), etcher, wood engraver and illustrator. I was an Associate Royal Society of Miniature Painters, Sculptors and Gravers. Member of Hilliard Society, and member of Artists and Designers in Wales (AADW).
In the 1980s I exhibited at The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours, Royal Society of Miniature Painters, Sculptors and Gravers, Society of Wood Engravers.
Moving from 2 dimensional media to three dimensions has brought with it a number of thrilling and fascinating challenges both technically and artistically.
Principle amongst my aims is the integration of 2 dimensional imagery into 3 dimensional form ? an idea of ?landscape in the body? rather than ?body in the landscape?. I am currently developing a theme incorporating imagery from Welsh and other Native Mythology.
My other main love is the garden and work for exhibition in this setting is very much my aim.
I am a member of the Association of Life Casters International and Borderland Visual Arts.
