Biography

I was born in Belgrade and settled permanently in the UK aged 11. I completed an Art Foundation, followed by a diploma course in architecture, culminating in an ARIBA in 1966. My drawing skills proved to be instrumental to my success in my profession and I never stopped sketching and creating 3-D objects, even while practising as an architect.

Sculpting was a passion that developed later on in life, beginning with clay and then turning to wood, stone, and metal. I continue to work with all three materials but am constantly searching for new ways to take my sculpting to different levels. I often combine different materials in one piece, or change the texture of wood by scorching it. I rarely prepare drawings or maquettes, preferring the material to guide me: it’s the element of surprise that excites and spurs me on.
