  • My Artistic Influences

    I have been asked this week to take over The Visual Arts Scotland Instagram page to give an insight into my work as a Sculptor and Letter Carver. One of the themes I was asked to explore was who are my artistic influences ? If I was asked to name artists or creatives who have influenced my work or whose work excites or inspires me in someway, I would have to say Alberto Giacometti, Eric Gill and Ian Hamilton Finlay. I also admire the work of the famous Barbara Hepworth, and the contemporary sculptors, Emily Young, and Mel Fraser.
