Sculpting in clay is a wonderful way to capture lifelike characters and tell stories, which is what this work is about.
A few years ago I was thinking about what to include in a group exhibition, Lazy Days. The images which came to mind were from my childhood in country town – exploring, playing, making up games. In a pre-digital time – although the TV was just starting to make inroads, which seem\ed much more clearcut to a child.
Grandchildren have now brought back my second, or third, childhood. Some of my recent work tells some of the timeless traditional tales of childhood.
