I am a self taught 3D artist using found materials – wood, metal, plastic – to create both figurative and abstract pieces mainly for outdoor/garden locations but also small pieces for indoor display. I refer to myself as a “creative bodger” and am more interested in the original idea and process rather than the ‘finish’ of a piece. I have been making ‘objéts’ since the late 60s, having been fired up by an Antony Caro exhibition of painted steel works at the Hayward Gallery, London. I collect discarded objects from skips and such like, and it may take several years before seeing something stimulates me to begin the creative process.
