Robin has been professionally sculpting since 2010 having attended Jacob Kramer College of Art in Leeds in the early 1980’s and following a long career in furniture design/making and architectural services. He works from a home studio in the beautiful market town of Hexham, Northumberland.
Robin prefers to make each sculpture as a true original by hand building each piece, no matter how small, rather than casting. He sculpts in a wide variety of materials including high content bronze epoxy resin and ink tinted metal/silver leaf in various finishes – all formed over an internal armature/skeleton making each piece unique, with every layer built up enabling the execution of finer detail. He uses locally sourced and upcycled materials wherever possible including hardwoods, heather and locally hand quarried sandstone.
Much of Robin’s inspiration is attributed to a connection and respect with the rural environment. His subject matter reveals his love of nature and features birds and animals. He places emphasis on movement, expression, postures and mannerisms. The dynamic surface finishes add to his distinctive style. Robin’s work is well known for often being quirky and humorous.
