An early career in museums and restoration carving gave me contact with high quality artifacts and set the standard which I work towards. I worked at:

The Metropolitan MuseumNew York, the British Museum,  Bethnal Green Museum of Childhood and the Crafts Council.  

 

I am still inspired by historic artifacts and have published a study of the carvings on the choir screen in King's College Chapel, Cambridge. See:

 'A re-appraisal of the iconography of the choir screen at King's College Chapel, Cambridge'

This training instilled an attention to fine detail and gave me a rigorous grounding in:

Stone carving / Stone masonry / Lettercutting. 

 

Since 2003 I have run my own business creatingsculpture by commission for individual clients, and teaching short Stone Carving Workshops in my studio.
