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:
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:

Apprenticeships and employment:

See Early Work photos.
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 working almost exclusively by commission to individual clients.
I am able to draw together a team of craftspeople with a variety of skills if the size or nature of the project requires it.
