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

LONG INTRO:

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.
