Whether sculpting on commission or for my personal collection, each of my pieces represents the highest quality of work with intricate detail and individual character.
Since moving to beautiful British Columbia I have been inspired by the art history of the Pacific West Coast Native peoples and their deep connection to the land and extraordinary indigenous wildlife. Drawing inspiration from modern architecture and steel construction I have used strong form lines and the power of a simple distilled aesthetic to create a series of unique 3D panels in anodized aluminum. This contemporary presentation is enhanced by mounts which vary from natural walnut to greys and reds as a counterpoint to the cool colours and smooth texture of the metal.
I work from my creekside studio in West Vancouver and am very happy to work on special project commissions for wall panels. Recent exhibitions include the 2015 Art Vancouver Expo, 2016 Art Vancouver Expo. Additionally, I have pieces on exhibit at the Hollyburn Country Club and Nita Lake Lodge in Whistler.
Educated in the U.K. and Switzerland, it was some years later whilst living in Africa that I had the opportunity to train with a master goldsmith in the lost wax process of casting. I developed my own artistic style experimenting with form, textures and asymmetrical balance, working in the lustrous hues of sterling silver. In 1998 I established my own studio. I have lived and worked in Zimbabwe, London, Hong Kong, Singapore and New York and previous clients include British Designer Paul Smith, Thomas Goode of Mayfair and the Singapore Polo Club. In 2002 I was invited to exhibit at the prestigious Goldsmiths Hall in London.
