Artist Statement

I am a contemporary wire artist based in Staffordshire. I use wire and found materials to create three dimentional drawings and sculptures of everyday objects. My inspirations include found objects and everyday items and anything I find that has an interesting line. I aim to give this line a new life through different experimental techniques and simple form.

The wire is simple and elegant allowing the focus to be on the line of the object, something so simple and yet often missed. I aim to bring a decorative touch to the wire using thread wrapping, twisting and rolling.

The sculptures are often to scale, replicating the object. The line looks almost drawn on, creating the impression of three dimentional drawings.
