Medium:  mixed media

Background:  M.A. in Psychology; formal background in theatre. The rest is self-taught.

How long have you been a sculptor?  I’ve always sculpted, mainly in clay, fiber and paper, but began formally exhibiting and selling my mixed media sculptures in 2009.

Why did you start sculpting?  I didn’t make a conscious decision to start, it was always in me, one more way to express a creative idea.

What inspires you?  Anything that strikes me as ridiculous, pompous or just plain odd. These things start my mind working creatively.

What is your favourite sculpture?  I like elements of too many sculptures to point to just one!

Which sculptures will you be exhibiting at Dimensions 2013?  ‘Bad Day At The Office’ and ‘Vote When You Can’

What will you be working on in the coming year?  More pieces about time, fashion and protest.

Each of my creations is created by me in the flame of my torch before being sent off to their new owners.
