We have now relocated our studio to a shop, almost on the beach, in Weymouth! Our studio-gallery is:

The Happy Crab Gallery, 20A Gloucester street, Weymouth, Dorset, DT4 7AW

We are open mostly by appointment. Just give me a call on 07943803551 first, but we shall certainly be open in time for Christmas! We are easy to find in the town centre, with ample parking on the street, in the Park Street car park just outside, as well as Melcombe Regis car park across the road. We have wide and level access and, when I'm there, basic BSL too. We are a 2 mins walk from Weymouth beach!

My sculptures range from small, table centre pieces, to large scale garden art and my twin themes are Feminist History and Natural History.

I now have a maquette, (small scale model), of Regency legend Anne Lister cast in foundry bronze, hopefully as a prototype for a larger piece of public art in patinated foundry bronze, if accepted. The Anne Lister maquettes, in limited edition foundry bronze, are now available to buy!

I am now working on a Kingfisher in a threat display to be cast by April 2022. 
The 1st of the limited edition is already spoken for, but if you would like the 2nd of the limited edition, please do

My Goddess sculptures are mostly modern reworkings of Neolithic and Bronze Age female archetypes from the Mediterranean region, such as Hypnia, the Nile Goddess, the Cycladic Goddesses and the Abundant Goddess, but I have now also branched out into female and feminist icons too such as Regency legend Anne Lister.

My bas-relief wall hanging wildlife sculptures range from Frogs to Leather-Back Turtles, from Ravens to Wild Boar covering a wide variety of endangered or reintroduced British species. Being made of stoneware clay they are suitable for indoor and outdoor spaces. As I am moving into foundry bronze these ceramic pieces are selling out fast, and I shall not be making any more.

My patinated foundry bronze sculptures also explore endangered, reintroduced and persecuted British wildlife such as Buzzards, Red Kites, Badgers and Swifts. Some of my current works in progress include a stretching Fox, a Kingfisher in a threat display and a mantling Barn Owl. I am currently finishing the Kingfisher, with a life sized Badger 'Persecuted' and the the Fox to follow in 2022.

I exhibit mostly in the South East at the Royal Academy, Mall Galleries, Oxford Natural History Museum etc, and in the South West at the Bowie Gallery, Delamore, South West Academy, etc. I make occasional forays further afield to the Royal Scottish Academy, the Ulster Royal Academy, and I ship my work internationally to customers in the USA, Germany, Australia and Denmark.
