I am a maker of wooden figurative and abstract sculptures based on life, experience, feeling and emotion. I chase the grain by carving, scorching, blasting, and creating large faces or strange curiosities from nature. My work justifies my existence, helps me express myself and find meaning. As a sculptor I evoke another time, creating a dreamscape, whilst sharing the beauty of wood that I am fortunate to see daily. With cross-cultural sources from my African birthplace to historical and contemporary Britain, I have always been drawn to ancient art and ritual.
