'SPARE PARTS' SCULPTURES (Robots etc.)

These sculptures started as a way to 'recharge' my batteries before a new bout of painting - what I really am known for - but have grown to have their own audience of admirers. They are all made from 'found objects' that I scrounge 2nd hand stores for and a lot of my friends junk piles in their basements and garages.  
I'm still creating them!

Made to sit on a dashboard and bounce.
