About the artist:
Creating is like an exciting adventure, I never know where it will take me or what I will create. I consider it a privilege to be able to share my art and teach others what I have spent so long teaching myself.
I have been working on new techniques allowing my creations to be more sculpture and less plush. The resulting sculptures, puppets and maquettes are as soft as ever, have solid torsos with flexible extremities enabling the creatures to be posed into lifelike positions.
My aim is to blur the lines between ‘plush’ and ‘sculpture’, ‘real’ and ‘fantasy’.”
About the person:
“I am nothing special, what I know I have learnt through endless hours of trial and error. I have a love of learning, the dedication to practice and a true passion for my art. I didn’t study at an art school nor have I been lucky enough to be tutored by an artist. I create because it is what I love doing”.
“Never be afraid to create.
Don’t strive to be ‘perfect’, there is no such thing.
Fight to be better.
Better than you where yesterday, better than you will be tomorrow.
Be the best you can be.
Create to the best of your ability”
