About me

I have over 20 years of experience and success in the creation of high quality artwork designed to withstand the rigours of the public space. Works have been in 3 dimensions, as well as ground and wall based relief. Over the years I have made new works for town centres, community gardens, public recreation grounds, local authority buildings, housing association developments as well as libraries, hospitals and health centres.

Swans progressing...

The six Swan pieces are coming along. This week I started on number 4. The others are not completed but I am now alternating between pieces. Nos 5 and 6 have been roughed out and I hope to work into them next week.

Tomorrow (Friday May 1st) Re-Launch will be delivered back to my studio from the foundry.

Swans in progress.

Selby Town Features
The site of the Abbey was confirmed when its founder, Benedict, witnessed three swans alighting on the river and recognised a scene from his vision. The swans became the symbol of Selby, featuring in the Abbey’s coat of arms. I've designed a series of sculptures to be placed at the entrance to the town, depicting swans in all three elements - on land, water and in flight - as a unique celebration of Selby’s divine and earthly heritages.

Re-Launch cast at foundry.

Re-Launch has now been cast. I'm waiting for it to be delivered back to my studio, where I will finish fettling it before painting.

Time Line ready for installation.

The Time Line has now oxidized nicely and is waiting to be sited.

The Healing Landscape, carved brick bas-relief

'The Healing Landscape' - carved brick bas-relief sculpture.
Ysbyty Alltwen, Tremadog, North West Wales.

Finally, more than a year after my piece was installed, the new hospital at Tremadog in North West Wales has opened for business. Unfortunately I wasn't invited to the official opening ceremony so the photos here have been 'borrowed' from the BBC website.
