Metal Animal Sculpture

I make animal sculptures in non ferrous metal.

 I studied Fine Art at  Nottingham Trent University, where I learnt metalwork skills in the sculpture department. I was influenced by Alexander Calder's 'Circus' made from found materials, Muybridge photos of movement and The Cabaret Mechanical Theatre. 

I grew up on a Warwickshire farm, and the farm animals and wildlife influenced the wire, perforated and sheet metal animal sculptures I created. 

I'm still influenced by the wildlife that surrounds me in Warwickshire, along with other wildlife encountered on trips and wildlife in the media.
