Figurative sculpture and the art of bronze casting have fascinated me since my early years at Ipswich Art School.
After completing a foundation course in fine art and a 3 year course in graphics, I pursued a career in graphic design and advertising. However I continued to draw the figure from life and often experimented with figurative sculpture and casting in various materials. Eventually my passion to interpret the human form and the desire to practise bronze casting was to become a full time vocation.
Initially I learnt the more traditional bronze casting methods but then migrated to more recent techniques and materials, with the use of ceramic shell. This seemed more suited to my work, and to allow myself more flexibility I decided to set up my own foundry facilities.
Intrigued by both musculoskeletal structure and surface contour and form I seem to have adopted two quite different interpretations.
