I have collections of different materials ranging from paper to metal which I use to make my sculptures. Part of my work is the process of exploring, collecting and researching the findings. I pick up anything that I feel will be useful one day! Sometimes there maybe a part I need for one of my sculptures…if I do not have the right part I make and model what is required.
I draw and make studies of the sculptures while I am working on them in order to work out ways to construct certain parts. I never draw out exactly what I want to make at the start because then there will be no need for me to make it as I can already see it!
