I make unique handmade sculptures made from recycled fabrics, suitable for both home & garden. My work is all self taught and I deliberately avoided training so I could develop my own individual style.
My sculptures are all ‘one-offs’ with no two identical. No moulds or patterns of any kind are used & no castings are made, so you are guaranteed to be getting a truly original work of art. I have been making & selling my sculptures since 2002, selling through galleries and art events.
My sculptures aren’t meant to show an accurate representation, but more the spirit & character of the subject, with a touch of humor. I feel I have achieved my goal if I manage to put a smile on someone’s face when they view my artwork. I use recycled fabric including old t-shirts, socks & jeans. I get much joy from transforming discarded items into a work of art. I treat the fabric with a special resin that hardens & weather proofs it, making them suitable for both home & garden. I hand paint the sculptures to look like metal. Although you may imagine the sculpture to be delicate they are in fact quite robust.
They range in size from several inches tall to life size pieces. Along with the faeries and pixies I also do a range of quirky animals including hares, dogs cats etc. Please contact me via my website or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
I hope you enjoy looking at my artworks as much as I enjoy painting them! You can find more of my art on my social media pages.
