About

“If it’s not good enough for me, it’s not good enough for anyone else!”

 

I’m sure that this is what every artist feels and thinks and so it goes for me.  It’s what gets us through the days when it just won’t work, when it doesn’t feel right, when you seem to be going down a blind alleyway.  And it’s no good looking at what you’ve done in the past if the piece in front of you isn’t right, but then with perseverance it clicks and you’re off; “I’ve still got it” you smile to yourself.

 It’s been a strange path from winning awards for men’s fashion through designing children’s wear to my studio and kiln, but it is the most rewarding part of my career by far and here I am after 25 years of sculpting in clay doing the work I love, making art that is classically realistic, yet a style of my own.

It’s certainly not “contemporary”, but after all there’s nothing wrong with that as I’m not either!
