Sculpture (also CD Album Design and Collage )

I have always tied in being resourceful with my creativity- The cast offs of our consumer society provide a vast array of materials to work with, I work intuitively and instinctively to make recycled sculptures from Tin and Found Objects.

This is exciting as you never know what you are going to find, in some ways the sculptures make themselves, I just act like a catalyst for the event to take place.

On top of this it is an environmentally friendly way of working and illustrates what can be done with what is thrown away. Through ‘Recycling and Reinterpretation’- what the world considers to be surplus to requirements can be given new life.
