About Me

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


SHORT INTRO:  (Links to video & radio interviews below)
My work is rapidly evolving into very personal sculpture, from my roots in the historic stonecarving trade


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, and then for some of the best craft workshops in the UK.

I am still inspired by historic artifacts, and have published an analysis of the Tudor carvings on the choir screen in King's College Chapel, Cambridge:

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

Notes and Queries (2014) 61(2):204-206. Oxford University Press Journals.


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

My 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 creating sculpture for individual clients, and teaching short Stone Carving Workshops in my studio.
