I've been messing around with wire my whole life, and since 1996 it's been my profession also. I was born in London, England in 1971 and moved to the US in 1994. I opened my full-time studio in 1995 and have spent tens of thousands of hours weaving, sculpting and selling my wire creations. My ArtPrize entry will be my most ambitious piece by far, taking over 2000 hours to complete. It will be a 12ft tall winged figure with 1200 LED lights.
