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.

December 4th 2010

I'd been having a few problems with unsolicited spam comments being left on my blog. I changed my security settings to block this happening. Unfortunately I seemed to have blocked all comments. I've now changed my settings again so hopefully people will be able to leave comments on my blog once again. Look forward to hearing from you!

December 1st..... Uh-oh!!

This was the sight that greeted us this morning on arrival at the studio.
Even Hamish's shelter had been defeated by the over night snowfall.

Due to the access road to the studio being slightly treacherous we decided to postpone work today and headed home.....
... but couldn't resist doing this first!

Nov 30th.... More work in progress

Having moved most of the stones indoors we have drawn up the designs and transferred them to the stone.

Work continues....

25th November 2010

A light dusting of snow covered the granite this morning.
We decided to move some of the half worked stones inside to thaw out.
Cold feet!!

Some of the bronzes have now been cast and I have applied an initial patina. There is still a bit of work to do on these but I'm fairly happy with how they look.
