Artists Statement

I recently finished a Fine Art degree (2005) at the Derby University. I class myself has a Sculptor/Maker and a Visual Arts Practitioner.
There are two side to my business firstly, has a studio artist I mainly work figuratively where I experiment with human feelings and emotions. These I transfer in to figures using body language and gesture utilizing many different materials. For the past few years I have been working with the figure of the Minotaur, which I have developed not only in various scales but also the concepts thereby become child-like in appearance.
My reasoning behind this is that children show their feelings and emotions more readily than adults; this allows me to over state the vulnerabilities we all feel when our emotions take over. Also the idea of what is classed as a Monster or Beast could possibly have any feeling, let alone be allowed to show them is also part of the message I am trying to convey.
I plan to continue this work and develop it still further.

The second part the business is has Visual arts practitioner, where I take my skills in to schools and communities setting. I work in partnership children, teachers and adult education, where I conducting workshops, which are tailored for their individual requirements.
This part of this business is fairly new
