“I have always found the human form challenging and exciting, with scope for endless inspiration. I love the earthiness of human emotion, the vulnerability and strength that is in all of us. I try to be faithful to form and volume when creating a sculpture, as I feel that without using the anatomy when sculpting a figure, it loses strength and conviction.”
