Bronze animal sculpture

“Youth is not a stage in life, it is a state of mind”
My life-long passion for animals and their behaviour has made them the favourite subject for my work.
I focus a large part of my time observing them, studying their expressions, movement and fragility.
All my pieces are made using the technique that I feel is most suited to each particular animal: wax, plaster, or clay. Then the piece is cast using the lost-wax process, resulting in the sculpture in that noble material – bronze.
My aim is to realise in a concrete manner, my observations, feelings and ideas.
