He will show how to use the clay and create structure, form and texture.

‘From an early age I displayed a passion for drawing and painting and with encouragement from my GCSE art teacher Mr Clegg I began to develop my skills. I continued on to do A-Levels and then on to a foundation course at Portsmouth College of Art & Design. In 1992 I enrolled at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge for a degree in Graphic Arts & Illustration, specialising in printmaking. Graduating in 1995 with a 2:1 BA Hons degree.’

‘Since graduating much of my inspiration has come from my love of the natural world with much of my work concentrating on studies of animals with a particular interest in wildlife. I try to capture the essence of the animal concentrating on light, form and movement to produce a piece of work with the feeling of depth and life. I work in both 2D and 3D with a variety of mediums including oil, pencil, printing, soapstone, clay and plaster of Paris. Using the medium that is best suited for the piece I want to create.’
