“My biggest inspiration has always come from acrobatics and the theater. I want my work to capture a sense of movement, balance and performance combined with the beautiful aesthetic of gymnasts and dancers”.
In my current series - All that Jazz, I am exploring the moody performances and lively dance routines from productions such as ‘Chicago’, ‘A Chorus Line’ and of course Bob Fosse’s ‘Cabaret’. I hope to capture the energy, glamour and excitement each performer brings to the ‘stage’.
Sculptures are made using an epoxy resin clay which is stronger than traditional clays.
They have an internal armature made from a mixture of wire, plaster, wood, foam and steel.
