I work mainly in various metals. The different metals that I use give varying colours, textures and changeable qualities according to the changing light, whether natural or artificial.
Movement, momentum and atmosphere, has been an ongoing interest to me. Recently I have been exploring movement of the horse, and rider. The shapes that they create, as one inspired me to work on metal relief . The slightly raised silhouettes of the Horses and Riders create tones and shadows, which enhance the images more 3 dimensionally.
