How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

I describe by work as ‘Rustic’. I work with used or cast-off stone, getting a feel of what would like to be created with each piece. My style is influenced by Celtic art symbology and its intricate knots and crosses. There is something magical about Celtic design that evokes a world of spiritual connection, community and warrior living.

I also create names with interlocking letters on old flat stone and solar powered water features, carving Celtic symbols and concentric images which the water flows over.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

I love seeing whats possible with stone and creating things i love and have a beauty or meaning. Its fab when others also get a connection with my creations and see something in them too, whatever that may be. We all see things differently and to be able to create with stone and wood gives me the opportunity to play with my inner creative and its such a Joy sharing it with the world.
