Born and brought up in Kenya, I graduated with distinction in Fine Art, Sculpture from the Byam Shaw School of Art, London, later gaining a PGCE at Exeter University. I now live and work in Somerset, UK. I am interested in the natural world: latent energy, vitalism, the essence of life, its cyclical persistence, the interconnectedness and threads weaving through all things. I create mixed media sculptures often wrought as nest-like structures echoing universal primal forms in an apparent state of emergence, growth or metamorphosis. I work in a linear way, constructing drawings in space. Instinctive building processes such as wrapping, weaving and layering become a form of 3d mark making. The raw energy, longevity and varied patinas of steel, copper and wire have an interesting connection with other found and recycled materials. I like the concept of reusing things, giving them a rebirth and the playfulness of creating forms from given shapes. Alongside my practice as an artist, I teach art and run community projects. Awards include the Environmental award for Devon Recycled Sculpture TRAIL ’15, Atkinson Gallery Summer Show ’11 prize and 3d award for David Shepherd’s Wildlife Artist of the Year ‘09, London. My Green Capital Artist Residency for Bristol’s Big Green Week ’12, involved exhibitions at the Create Centre, Arnolfini and floating sculptures for the harbour. In 2013 I was commissioned by Somerset Art Works & National Garden Scheme to create site-specific artworks for the Abundance Garden Trail. Giant Nest formed part of several installations. As a former co-founding member, I installed a sculpture trail with the Scraptors group at Stourhead National Trust Estate (’11) and Magdalen Project (’13). In 2015 I curated, managed and commissioned a successful Arts Council-funded project ‘step in stone’, in Somerset quarries making site-specific art with fourteen international artists. Last year I created the woven canopy for Sarah Eberle’s gold and best artisan award-winning Mekong Garden, Chelsea Flower Show. I am a Rep for Somerset Art Works and a trustee of Black Swan Arts, Frome.
