Sculptural Work

This is a relatively new area of my work. Over the years I have felt compelled to explore the ideas I’ve been expressing on paper in 3D form and began by attending a stone carving class at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop, one course was enough to develop my visual and creative vocabulary, and following a weekend course in Mixed media sculpture, I discovered a whole new way of expressing myself, primarily through manipulating old bike tyres, of which I have a ready supply.

Working 3 dimensionally has now become my main creative outlet and recently I have begun working with a combination of stone and bike tyres exploring journeys we make in life. These chance discoveries leading to new ways of working are what I find both fascinating and exciting, as the results are always surprising and fresh, keeping me engaged as an artist.
