Best newcomer at Lloyd's of London Art Exhibition 2013
Having been an insurance broker turned grain trader for my career, I now describe myself as a ceramic sculptor specialising in alternative representation and bacchanalia.
My work has progressed through figurative charcoal/ink drawing and oil on canvas to working in clay which provides the necessary vehicle for evolving three dimensional representations. By employing various sculptural techniques followed by the many methods of glazing, my work has moved in some interesting directions.
From tiles through three dimensional figures to my more recent works which have included 'Lovelocks', Lancaster bombers and 'Plimsolliners', all of which have had the addition of subject related kiln proof transfers, the work produces some interesting parodies designed to stimulate the viewer.
