About the Artist

I've always been creative and coming England there was plenty of time to be indoors making things. I have tried many different mediums over the years but in 2010 I moved to California and my next door neighbour introduced me to polymer clay and the rest as they say is history.

Having initially created jewelry I now concentrate on my wine glass charms and Steampunk work. During the pandemic I really focused on this style and created my Fish out of Water Series, culminating in this my very largest piece of work. My work is in a local gallery and I am also in a Studio in the Spanish Village Art Centre, Balboa Park.

Sharky McShark Face

Sharky McShark Face

4.5 x 6.5 ft

Polymer clay, metallic paints

The latest recruit to the bomb squad. The other fish are making themselves scarce as he has arrived smoking a pipe and with what looks like a brand new copy of Bomb Disposal for Sharks, has he even looked in it? and why is it Volume II... whatever happened to Volume I? Picture is 4½ ft x 6½ft and used about 8lb of black clay and metallic paints.
