My interest in the natural world is the primary force driving my work. I work principally in wood and stone using hand tools and traditional methods where possible, but I’m not averse to using power tools when necessary. My aim is to capture the essence of the subject through expression and movement in a realistic form, but one that is sculpture, not a mannequin. I am especially drawn to raptors but am fascinated by all life forms. My aim is to capture the inner essence of the subject through expression and movement whilst trying to maintain a light touch.
