As a long-term painter I came to carving stone via the box-collage. The themes I return to are mostly figurative and I admire the pre-perspective freedom of the Medieval carvers. I also think there?s a more mileage to the Cubist view of the world and so a combination of the these two elements drives my work quite often. My favourite medium is pencil ? it?s the closest brain-to-hand form of expression.
