I have been carving stone for 28 years and teaching carving and stone sculpture for 17 years.
From an early age I decided to be an artist,I went through art training to degree level where I specialised in sculpture and fine art.I loved stone as a material while at university and when I finished I continued on to train as a stone carver at Weymouth College which covered letter cutting,architectural carving and masonry skills. I had the privilege to be taught by the stone masons and professional tutors in the field.
I later trained as a tutor to teach adults my skills in stone carving.I worked for 16 years for Devon Adult Learning as a stone carving tutor and many other tutoring short term roles to enhance my teaching abilities. I now run from my teaching studio at Dartington Hall Estate, a stone carving course programme called Sculptworks.
I work on my own ideas and sculpture from my studio, developing themes related to the human condition and life cycles. I am also interested in folklore .I develop my sculptures to tell a story which is often produced as sequences.
I have experience of exhibiting my sculpture since 1992 from London to south west.This has taught me the important skills of selling and presenting my work to the public.
