Under the tutelage of Gilbert Whyman I produced Saskia, my first ever sculpture. She may not be too refined but is a good reference point – she was sculpted as a quick sketch in only a couple of hours. www.gilbertwhyman.co.uk
This amazed me and I was totally blown away by the experience of observing a life model and reproducing her in clay. So overwhelming was it that I could not sleep and thoughts of creating more art would consume me.
It felt as if this were a skill alive within me and something I was Meant to do. To this day I do not know where it comes from and I often can’t believe what I am producing, but the passion and the excitement it instills in me drives me onwards….
