My curiosity about life has led me, in art, to experiment with many methods of plastic expression. Whether I’m working in oil, sculpture or print, it’s all a way of sharing my zest for life, of capturing the instant.
Jazz is a spontaneous artistic expression. My love of music has enabled me to capture the movement and the atmosphere in oil as well as in sculpture: my metal musicians emerge from a long mould-making process spontaneously alive and immediate, their motion eternally ‘of the moment’.
The figure with the trumpet was inspired by a bronze figure that I had made. I often use figures from my prints to make oils or oils to make sculptures.
