Creating sculptures out of wire is like drawing in three dimensions. British birds are my main inspiration; capturing their movement and character are my primary concern. I find that wire has a spontaneity that can give my sculptures a feeling of life and energy. I aim to capture not only their shape but also their movement and character. A lot of time is spent drawing and studying the birds and often, small wire studies and life-size pieces are made directly in front of the subject.
