Girl in Woodland

This is an example of working in clay. I ran a weekend for novice sculptors in the middle of some woodland. The peacefulness of the trees helps to focus on the subject.

This model was cast in fibreglass.


A real character


This wonderful man has a lively inquisitive sense of humour.

What he did not know was that his family had commissioned this portrait as a present.

Catching his features and without him noticing was, therefore, a little tricky. Fortunately his grandchildren came to my rescue. I would tell them what I needed to study and they and created some video samples while he talked with them.

This photograph was taken as his character started to take shape.
