About Me

I trained in sculpture at Bath Academy of Art and it is there that I began stone carving. As the Academy was just down the road from the famous Bath Stone quarries I could pick up a lump for little money and hand forging my first tools, I started to carve.

A couple of years later I spent 9 months at the Cyprus College of Art further developing my sculptures and following a sell out exhibition in Nicosia, began my stone sculpture career.

In the intervening years I have exhibited mainly in London and Bath, around the country and abroad. Final destinations range from California and New Zealand, to a Bangkok nightclub.

I generally carve in limestone, predominantly French but also some well known English limestones such as Bath, Portland and Ancaster.

My sculptures are in the collections of many people including Lord Carrington, Michael Heseltine, Prue Leith, Felix Dennis and Neil Tennant.

I have been a member of the Royal Society of Sculptors since 1997.

I’m lucky enough to work and live on the beautiful Mendip Hills, south of Bristol, with my wife and family.
