A Vintage Garden

Wire birds fly in a black and white landscape

Capturing movement means everything to me! It’s my inspiration when creating a wire sculpture, and my greatest pride when receiving a critique. Working with wire came about after a serious accident to my right hand which required a complete skin graft. I discovered weaving soft wire a fantastic therapy for regaining dexterity. The goal was to play the piano again, but I discovered a new love! Each sculpture starts with a single strand of wire to “sketch” the outline and is then interlaced by hand to create the three dimensional detail. Sometimes my work is abstract, but always recognisable.
