I am a full-time professional fine art sculptor working in marble and clay. For me, diversity is the key for finding inspiration and I look to nature, to past masters, to philosophy, to psychology and to poetry; but where the germ of the idea actually comes from is more mysterious. I spent some years in Africa and Asia on development projects as an architect before turning to sculpture and have degrees in Architecture and in Human Values and Contemporary Global Ethics. Working on raw marble blocks, I am well versed in both traditional and modern techniques and painstakingly plan my vision to the last detail in clay and on plaster maquettes. I believe that it is important to properly master all aspects of the production process from drawing and modelling, plaster casting, to every stage of carving: roughing out, forming and finishing. Doing all my own work allows for, as well as a deeper and evolving understanding of the subject, the maintenance of a high level of precision. Believing that creativity can be best served by the intersection of separate domains I alternate between abstract and figurative to maintain continuity in both. The spirit of inquiry can be present in all one’s endeavours and art should be grounded in nature.
