Contemporary sculpture rooted in history.
My work is on show at The Art of Protest, York, UK (opens 24 September 2021).
All pieces will be for sale.
I use the language and hand-skills of ancient artefacts combined with modern technology to create potent, original artwork in stone, bone and other materials.
I began my career in museums and galleries (The Metropolitan Museum in New York and The British Museum, The V&A’s Museum of Childhood, and The Crafts Council in London). Close contact with some of the most beautiful objects in the world taught me a great deal and set the standard for craft skills.
Bespoke Carving Trade:
Inspired by these artefacts, I retrained in Historic Stonecarving at The City & Guilds School of Art. I was then apprenticed to and worked with some of the best stonecarving and lettercutting workshops in England; Dick Reid’s Workshop in York, Richard Kindersley in London, Rattee & Ketts, and The Carving Workshop in Cambridge.
With these highly skilled teams I worked on many prestigious projects including; Lord Rothschild’s marble fireplaces at Spencer House London, St George’s Chapel Windsor Castle, York Minster, Ely Cathedral, the Tibetan Peace Garden at The Imperial War Museum London, The Peace Garden Sheffield, and Corpus Christi College Cambridge.
