I am a designer and maker of automata and other interesting things.
My work reflects craft skills combined with a humorous insight for the application of movement for automaton that are both beautifully made with an added dimension. Each automaton is unique responding with the materials to produce an original outcome.
I am influenced by historical craft and folk art objects, my love of animals and things that give humour. I create simple mechanical pieces where the quality of material choice or objects reused create automata with charm and craftsmanship.
My work is exhibited both locally and internationally. Pieces are mainly sold in galleries and from my studio and on occasion from my web site. I also enjoy bespoke commissions . More details about me and my work can be accessed on my web site.
