My aim as an artist is to stir up hidden emotion – to remind people of feelings which maybe they’d forgotten they have.

My source of inspiration remains the human body, and its infinite power of expression. I like to isolate particular parts, so the viewer can see them from a new and revelatory angle.

L'etreinte is a sculpture about love, and the importance of touch. It was made during the seemingly interminable months of lockdown. It is cast in Jesmonite, a reinforced plaster known for its durability and strength. The white surface allows the play of light and dark and enhances the tenderness and the subtlety of the touch.
