County: West Yorkshire
I make small mixed-media sculptures and jewellery.
The sculptures feature animals and birds, some as single pieces set on a small plinth, some as part of larger constructions.
My menagerie includes cats, mice, hares, donkeys, horses, goats, highland coos & alpaca.
The metal components of my work are all hand cut and stamped from brass and copper sheet or wire combined with painted wooden elements.
Each piece is made by hand so I can change the details and my creatures tend to take on individual characters.
Birds and flowers are the main theme in my jewellery. I use silver, bronze and copper. My work is figurative & is the result of the enjoyment I get from working & drawing in my garden.
