About the Artist
I produce sculpture, bas-relief carving and letter-cutting in stone. I work on public art projects, sculptural commissions and run stone carving workshops.
My work is often site specific. I like working to a brief and making art that responds to and embodies a sense of where it is. I enjoy art that invites participation, that is engaging and thought provoking, yet understandable.
I am based at a quarry in the hills above Holmfirth, on the northern edge of the Peak District.
In Britain we are fortunate to have great geological diversity and a ready supply of an enormous range of different stone, all within a relatively small area, meaning there’s no need to ship materials from the other side of the world.
An ethical approach; I make all my artwork myself, from roughing out huge blocks of stone to the most intricate carving, from concept to installation.
I like collaborating with people working in other disciplines and liaise with landscape architects, designers, structural engineers and artists working with other media. I am also used to working with specialists in moving and installing sculpture, dry stone walling and landscaping.
