I began to model in 2006 at Chipstead Craft Studios with Clive Oates. Subsequently, I have attended master-classes in portrait sculpture with Jon Edgar, with Suzie Zamit, and with Etienne Millner. In 2013 I completed a Certificate Course at the Art Academy where I focused on learning the basic techniques I lacked and the critiques and teaching I needed.

My models start life in clay, Newplast or wax and are then fired or moulded for editions to be cast in bronze-resins or bronze. I occasionally work in wire.

I often use musicians as my subjects because, while immersed in their music, they become the conduit for powerful expressions of feeling. In addition I try to portray the intense focus of sportsmen as they strive to be the best in their field.

I have had a number of commissions and have work in collections in the UK, the US and on the Continent.
