Paper and wire is one of the most versatile of mediums. It allows freedom of movement, great attention to detail, and the joy of self expression.
I use both realistic and anthropomorphic figures to create a situation, a story, or a comment on society, sometimes by the use of caricature..
The sculptures are constructed on a wire armature, and firmly layered with a variety of papers before being painted and heavily varnished to give them long-lasting strength. Often I paint the papers before using them to decorate the figures.
Recently I have branched into watercolours with interesting texturing, and often with a story to their themes.
Ideas come from classical mythology and modern events.
