How did you get into making art with Lego?

I've had a fruitful on and off again relationship with Lego since I was 4 years old, so it became the obvious choice for me to use it during a 3rd year art school project when I was fresh out of ideas. I soon realized I had a unique gift and a story to tell so the rest is history. Lego always provides.

Where do you get the Lego parts you use? Are they specially made or modified?

Most of the Lego I use is previously loved and I order it from the aftermarket website www.Bricklink.com; also unofficially referred to as Cracklink by its most avid users. I don't modify the parts to suit my needs either, that would be cheating. 

Do you glue all your sculptures?

Due to the unfortunate mischief of gravity, and Lego's inherent ability to unsnap at a time of its choosing, I do glue all my sculptures where it is structurally necessary. 

How much Lego do you have in your studio?

I don't know the exact number of individual parts I have in my studio, but it's certainly more than the unboxed Lego you'll find in your average Lego store. Upwards of 100,000 I imagine. Probably more.

Do you take commissions?

When the demands of my obsessive studio practice allow me some time I do take commissions. If you're looking to have an artwork created I encourage you to reach out using the contact page and someone will get back to you shortly. 

Do you design your sculptures before building them? Or use instructions, or assistants?

While I did spend countless hours at art school honing my drawing abilities to relative success, I typically rely on online photo references to inspire the forms of my artwork. Unless I'm working on a scaled-up artwork that necessitates the use of professional fabricators, designing them by hand or on the computer would only slow down my stream of consciousness approach. Consequently, this solitary sculpting process also disallows any non-telepathic people from helping me build. Sorting my inventory is of course a whole other matter entirely.
