Carved Portland stone
The sculpture is an attempt to convey the feeling of being torn from your homeland when fleeing as a refugee. The couple are clinging to each other as they feel anchorless; their home is now their connection to one another.

I have had a studio in South Devon since 1996 where I have evolved process and developed through the experience of life, parenthood, and various experiments with different materials. Most of my work is based on the human form and is often emotive. The stone is carved in a way that entices the viewer to engage with the senses, drawing attention to some areas and simplifying others. Ideas are formed from West country stone and more recently Alabaster and marble.
