About Me

My sculpture combines the simplicity and boldness of modern form with fine historic craft skills

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'

Training: Restoration Stone Carving at The City & Guilds of London Art School.

Apprenticeships and employment: 

With these teams I worked on projects including:

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.
