The notion that an individual creature may experience some ‘otherness’ or ‘spiritual’ dimension beyond our understanding of its instinctive animal behaviours is the premise behind much of my work, and portraiture a vehicle often used to explore feeling and expression. Whilst primates are an obvious and compelling theme given their genetic proximity to human kind, it is important to me that all subjects are sculpted with sensitivity and empathy,  mirroring elements of our shared consciousness and inviting the viewer to relate and reflect.
