Art Description

Sculpture: Textile, Fabric on Soft (Yarn, Cotton, Fabric), Other.

Principal influences of my art are Claes Oldenburg, the way he manipulates materials and objects and Louise Bourgeois for her large dynamic art in exploration of death and sexuality.

I have a fascination with vegetables and their form . I try to capture their texture ,detail, weight and colour.By pushing stitch to its extreme I'm able my make own material which I then sculpt to form a textile vegetable.

Viewers are always amazed at the complexity and realism of my sculptures
