 Shaun has worked as a designer, maker and educator for the past 20 years, continually honing his skills as a sculptor working in clay. The fluidity and organic nature of this medium allows the development of ideas to continue throughout the process of creation. This freedom is fundamental to his search for the character and subtle nuances of form which reveal themselves as the relationship between maker and creation develops.
 Extensive experience working with fibreglass on both large and small scale projects has proven invaluable in capturing these creations in a durable and functional form. Performing street theatre for Neighbourhood Watch Stilts International, La Fura Del baus, Walk the Plank, and Compagnie Off has also served to inform his creation of costumes and structures that allow performers to perform and engage with their audience.
 Some of these creations include Raijin Storm, a taiko show themed on the Japanese God of thunder, Raiju, a stiltwalking costume themed around the Japanese God of lightening, A climbable tree for Jack Drum Arts' theatre production of The Snow Dragons, A large Polar Bear for winter themed festivals, an elephant for Whitley Bay's circus themed summer carnival.
