Ian only looks to nature for inspiration, he is a tradional Sculptor and revel in the smallest of detail of any subject he takes on.

I only look to nature as my inspriation, I am a tradtional Scuptor and revel in the smallest detail of any subject I take on. i love the work of the old masters and respect the toil and time spent on one sculpture, it is evident that quality only comes at a price, and generally that prive requires committed talent and the consummation of time as they go hand in hand. I do not believe that you can improve too much on the beauty of nature but one is able to enhance a moment in time by providing a different perspective to reality. If I was to live a hundred life times, I would not be able to fulfil my passion for the need to sculpt. I mostly enjoy sculpting people and animal interacting in a harmonious and coexistent setting.

I have progressed over the years from minute finger sized resin sculpted figurines to 3 metre high Concrete and Bronze and resin sculptures weighting over a tonne. This evolution and passion for detail has stood me in good stead for my recent works, and I really enjoy it when people can see that little extra effort in the work I portray.
