My Background is rooted in highly-skilled hand-work
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.
In 2003 I established my own business creating commissioned sculpture for private clients.
Since 2017 I have run monthly award-winning Stone Carving Workshops.
I am currently working on personal sculptures and sculptural jewellery.
I am open to collaborative projects – contact me to discuss possibilities.
