Shropshire Lass - Oxfordshire Sculptor
Although born in Shropshire ,I consider Oxfordshire my spiritual home, I live and work in this beautiful county that informs my work.
I feel that I am so lucky to have found a medium that allows me to express my creativity and respond to all that inspires me.
My home is in the beautiful Cherwell Valley ,my walks around the valley are a daily ritual that ensure I have a constant connection with nature.I moved to Oxfordshire when I was 16 to work with horses.
My love of all things equestrian started at a very young age, growing up on a farm with my own pony was a dream and the horse has become a central theme for my work .
I am lucky to find myself able to access great art that inspires ,in Oxford I am blessed with a major source of inspiration at the
Ashmolean Museum ,where there are thousands (millions actually) of artefacts ,sculptures,paintings that have inspired and informed my work.
In nearby Warwickshire there is one of Britain's greatest treasures ,Compton Verney ,a Georgian House set in a Capability Brown Landscape,recent exhibitions such as the Henry Moore and Rodin ,have been a delight especially as the work benefited from the spectacular backdrop for such wonderful sculptures from past masters.
