Artist Statement

I have exhibited widely from London, Milan, New York, Hong Kong, Singapore, San Diego, Zurich, Edinburgh, Aldeburgh, Sherborne and of course my home town Norwich.

I continue to get a thrill when people buy my sculptures because to me its means the work is really appreciated.

I returned to Norfolk in 1997 and strangely have ended up in the old house I grew up in, but now with my art therapist husband and our two boys.

The local interest in my work has been fantastic and continues to grow. 
I now exhibit regularly through several galleries, organise my own exhibitions and occasionally have invitation-only open studios. My work as a bronze sculptor continues to develop and sometimes I have to pinch myself that being a sculptor and being free to do exactly the work I want to do is not a dream - I never thought it would be possible and can't imagine doing anything more enjoyable.
