I am passionate about recycling and have become  a bit of a  magpie when out walking my dog as I’m always looking for discarded metal.  Scrap metal  can offer a variety of ideas and inspiration for sculptures especially when cut up into different profiles. All my pieces  are either animals or flowers and are designed for the home and garden.

Like many artists who use waste products the project is often determined by the material available. My sculptures are inspired by what I find and the shape of the metal with which I am presented. It can sometimes take a long time before inspiration strikes and this is often achieved by cutting the metal up to form different profiles.

My sculptures are for indoors and outdoors. The weight of the metal usually determines which it will be, the lighter metals being more suitable for interiors. I like to use a variety of metals for texture and colour.
