My paintings and sculptures are inspired by my love for wildlife and nature. I live in rural Wyre, a beautiful part of Lancashire situated between the Forest of Bowland hills and the coast. Most of my work results from a fleeting moment or chance encounter; a sudden flash of sunlight through the trees, a flock of waders rising from the shore.
I trained originally as a scientific illustrator at Blackpool and the Fylde School of Art and all my work is underpinned by my studies of form and anatomy. I enjoy the serendipitous results of using reclaimed and up-cycled metal in my welded sculptures, and I am also currently experimenting with the use of the water jet cutting process to create a new range of work.
My work is featured in private collections worldwide and I have exhibited in galleries and shows throughout the UK. My paintings and limited edition prints are for sale on my website shop, and my sculptures are available at WyreBird Studio, my Etsy shop.
