I started by modelling from live models and many different poses, the models were male and female and all different shapes and sizes. I soon saw that my emphasis was on poses always consisting of backs. I seemed to have a fascination for the sweep of a back and the curve of the spine.
I gradually moved on to carving in wood which I really enjoyed, the grain and different textures of the wood often gave surprising finishes and beautiful patterns from the grain. I often chose tree branches and worked with the shape often no knowing what it would be until it was finished.
