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


In my work I aim to catch a moment in time, an emotion, an energy, a point of balance.

I love figurative classical sculpture and find the marriage of steel and the human form very exciting. 

Steel is so beautiful if hammered, heated and conquered. To catch that moment using steel is my aim. Simple really, but technically quite challenging both with knowledge of anatomy and the manipulation of the steel.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

For me being an artist is a journey where I open an idea in my head and walk through a door chasing little glimmers and somehow during the process the journey develops and I find that I am in a place I never envisaged at the start. 

Sometimes it can take months and is very slow and then something great can happen in a day. 

I get a lot of joy from the results of my labor, and labor it can be, as welding and cutting steel can be quite a hard process with the machinery playing up.  However, the joy in the journey is not diminished by this at all.  I love what I do.

CV & Education: 

Farnham School of art in 1963 to 1966

Slade in London for another 3 years and studied sculpture under Reg Butler.

Practice & Activities:
