About Me

I discovered an aptitude for sculpture in 1995, following retirement from a business career as a Finance Director, and attended training courses at Edinburgh College of Art and West Dean College. I started to develop my skills by working in clay on figurative subjects and then moved onto mould making to enable me to cast bronze resin editions from my originals. In 2008 I attended a course on bronze casting at West Dean and have started to issue some editions of my work in foundry bronze, particularly for pieces where editions had sold out in bronze resin.

I have also developed an interest in stone carving, which was inspired by a course in Tuscany at Nigel Konstam's beautiful art centre near Siena. Since then I have undertaken several commissions in limestone, mostly of birds, and started to create more abstract pieces in marble.

My main focus has been on figurative subjects, with a particular interest in capturing the movements of dancers and the essence of birds.
