I first came to sculpture by joining a class at the Tower Arts Centre in Winchester about 10 years ago. I have always needed to be creative and have drawn, painted, sewn and gardened for many years. I love my garden and had bought one sculptural piece at vast expense – not even an original but a good copy. I particularly like original work. I realised that the only way I could have such objects was to have a go myself. Then I found I was fascinated by the varied processes of achieving a sculpture, and the continual learning curve handling unfamiliar tools and materials is a true challenge. Practising any discipline gives one a greater understanding of the processes involved and therefore a greater appreciation of the finished product.
