Sculpture ' Sid '
I am a sculptor and model maker with more than 20 years of experience in figurative sculpture. Over the last eleven years I have worked exclusively from my own studio and have fitted commissions and teaching around the raising of my children. My return to full-time work is partnered with my recent completion of a course in Visual Effects for films and intensive model making course.
