Nature, the human form, the unconscious and, of the course, the great artists of the past. Inspiration is an integral part of the artist. It is always there planning in a little corner of my subconscious. Stone is my favorite medium as it is so vey exciting. I want to touch it, carve it, change it into what it is hiding from me.I also do maquettes in wax or clay of larger designs to be translated to bronze or other metals. I also enjoy modelling portraits of young children."
