I was born in Somerset and am now living on the Kent coast in Ramsgate. After spending 3 months in the Middle East during my degree I moved to London where I worked for about 12 years making props for film, tv and advertising. I am a stone & wood carver and I also use print making to inform my work.

Artist's Statement:
My work is concerned and related to buildings and structures from the past. I am interested in the relationship between appearance, function, content and form. The loss of function and the power of redundancy also fascinate me. Plant forms and nature also inspire much of my work. My reliefs are both decorative and calming, but by taking familiar forms and exaggerating them or playing with their scale I also want to challenge your imagination.
