My work is figurative and based on seen and experienced reality, often it is based on people I know doing ordinary things. However it is seldom literal. It usually derives from an image of a figure that seems entirely characteristic of that person, but which at the same time carries abstract sculptural qualities and possibilities. All of the work is about balancing those two elements and using the qualities of the materials to express them.
