Contact details



I am a creative visual artist, living in Bath. My drawings and sculptures of animals, birds and the human figure are deeply rooted in the observation of form as it moves through space and time. In recent years many of my images have been shaped through contact and participation in various dance forms or developed through my interest in the human condition and its aspirations.

In my work can be found quick, gestural images, or large considered drawings. There are albatross in flight and dancers made out of steel, or ciment fondu figures stepping onto steel tightropes. Drawings related to dance and movement have appeared in various publications such as Feldenkrais, Middle Eastern Dance and Contact Quarterly journals. 

To compliment my personal studio work, I also accept drawing and sculptural commissions, and have at least twenty years experience running workshops based on drawing skills and working with the live figure.
