Work in progress- here are some images of a sculpture I have started work on. Having worked solidly on drawings and box pieces for last couple of years this has been a nice change. The plan with this piece is to work in a pretty improvised way, adding to the construction day by day until it feels like I should stop. I'll try to keep you posted as it progresses...

This one is called 'Opening', it didn't make it into the show
John, 2010 2x1.5" balsa & card

I presently have a piece of artwork 'John' in a group show called Miniscule at the Oblong Gallery in London. As the title suggests all the work on show is very small - with 2 x 1.5 inches being the maximum size allowed. The exhibition was curated by Jim Racine and Vanya Balogh and runs until 27th June at Oblong Gallery, 69A Southgate Road, London N1 3JS

You rarely get to see the caring side of a Sith Lord,

The school I work at was closed for two days recently because of heavy snow. I took the opportunity to build a snow castle with my kids Grace and Sam. It was actaully less of a castle and more of a wall, but we had a lot of fun making it...

Trying to get back into making work after the christmas break, not easy. I did this drawing in an attempt to figure out how to extend the cut out piece 'Outpost'.
