Inspiration can strike at any time and in many ways...

Recently I was inspired by someone very close to me whose infectious enthusiasm for all things fan-like led to my creation of ‘Fi of the Fans’.

As with all my ‘actors’, she began life on paper before being digitally skinned and sculpted into a ‘real being’. However, her fate was that of ‘stylised deconstruction’ so she could become and hopefully elegantly embrace my ‘Fi of the Fans’

She is brash and bold but also cutely coy, keeping her dignity carefully concealed in an occasional flourish of vivid colour.
