I often see Roe deer in the countryside where I live and sometimes they venture into our garden. I’ve sculpted Roe deer several times before but I’m still drawn to these shy animals. In these new Roe deer sculptures, I wanted to convey a sense of tension. Although the deer are sculpted in static poses, they are alert and wary.
The year got off to a snowy start! I quite enjoy a good sprinkling of the white stuff. It turns the garden into a playground for a while! I also enjoy how it casts my sculptures in a new light, transforming the way they look outdoors. We had some fun trying to make snow sculptures too.
As a sculptor, I am always pleased when my pieces are made available as public art. Sometimes a collector puts one of my pieces on display to a wider audience or I receive a commission for a sculpture for a specific public place. I really enjoy knowing that my work will be appreciated by visitors and passers-by.
