The work draws on our legends and the figures and faces that populate our stories and
imaginations both concious and unconcious, popular and forgotten.
After studying Theatre Design and Illustration, I worked as an Illustrator for many years.
Over time this illustrative work began to morph into three-dimensional
pieces. Using mostly found and recycled resources, the works are mixed media and papier-mache.
They are bold, colourful and playful, full of intrigue, humour and mystery. I aim to create something
magical from a variety of materials that may be discovered in skips and bins up and down the country.
My work is powerfully influenced by the stories, pictures, films and children's television of
his Cotswold childhood in the 1970s.
As an artist in residence at Prema Arts in Uley I has been exploring
further and creating larger pieces pushing further into those tall tales
from our past discovering new faces and old characters.
