Sculpture Artist

The wild within us. Capturing the stubborn beauty of windswept trees and urban crows, an ode to their resilience.The windswept trees, twisted from the elements, grow triumphant. The crows, take ownership of their harsh, urban environment and stand proud.Predominately working in wire, using various metals, finishes and techniques, the wire is the sculptural interpretation of the drawn line.

 

Graduated with a 2:1 in Fine & Applied Art from University of Ulster, 2007, specialising in sculpture.
