After studying contemporary dance, I became increasingly interested in the movement of the human body, and began to understand more about anatomy. This inspired me to create sculptures using the enigmatic body of a dancer as it becomes simplified when caught in a moment of time, even when twisted in a complex shape it still expresses the joy in the
spirit and beauty of the human figure. I have developed my nude studies by sometimes sculpting fabric and other material, this creates a dynamism and serves to distract the eye from the human form accentuating the unbridled energy of the spirit within.
In 2005 I was awarded Best Visual Artist at the ‘Art of Love’ exhibition, Oxo Tower, South Bank, London. Also the Solomon & Whitehead Award for Best Figurative Exhibit at the Society of Women Artists Summer Exhibition held at the Mall Galleries, London and invited to full membership of the SWA. In 2006 I was awarded Best Sculpture at the Chelsea Arts Society and also became a member of the Free Painters & Sculptors Society. Artists & Illustrators Magazine ran a 4 page feature on my work in September issue 2007 and have exhibited extensively throughout the UK.
