My studio is now open Thursday, Fridays & Saturdays and other days by appointment so please phone before heading off! Masks will need to be worn indoors and, having been an orthopaedic shoemaker in the past, I am currently making stylish but effective face masks for sale, and am now designing the fabric to make them from too!

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.
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, but I am also embarking on exploring entire ecosystems via my Badger trophic Cascade sculpture, one of my current works in progress, along with several other single animal sculptures including two Foxes, a Kingfisher and a Barn Owl all being cast soon.
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 Devon Guild, Delamore, South West Academy, etc. I make occasional forays further afield to the Royal Scottish Academy and I ship my work internationally to customers in the USA, Germany, Australia and Denmark.
