contemporary sculpture inspired by nature


My sculpture is inspired by pattern and symmetry in nature. One of my main sources of inspiration are the silhouettes formed against the sky by tree foliage at different times of the year. The spaces between the branches and leaves are just as important, a concept known in Japanese gardens as ‘Ma’, and is akin to the silences between the notes in music. Sometimes it is the gaps I am looking for just as much as the leaves themselves.


My background in graphic design influences my exploration of form and line. Drawings and photographs are the starting point from which I develop organic, abstract and figurative sculpture. I create intricate drawings from which the final artwork is digitally cut into stainless steel, corten weathering steel, aluminium, copper and plywood, transforming the drawn line into a tangible object.









I work to commission, for public, private and corporate clients and collectors, creating free standing and wall sculpture for interior and exterior spaces. I offer a bespoke service to art consultants, interior designers, architects and garden designers.
