I've always done life drawing so I see figurative sculpture as an extension to those classes.  I sculpt from
drawings sketched with a nude model.  I enjoy working with the human body as it represents universal human
experiences and emotions;  it also transcends cultures and time lines.  It's a source of inspiration and an
ongoing challenge.

Sculpture teaches you the importance of spatial awareness and working in the round.  The use of positive and
negative space, the centre of gravity and mass.  My emphasis on the human body is in its fluidity of continuous
line like the constant flow of energy through the body.  I deliberately discard the detail.

Working with clay is like working with a second skin and I try to not to have a preconceived idea and let the clay
bend to the model in front of me.
