Biography:

I find the whole process of making objects highly enjoyable, and working out the methods and materials to be used is both rewarding and challenging. I also like learning new techniques to help achieve the desired result. I take my influences from things that interest me or catch my attention. These could be forms in nature, new design movements or traditional and ancient design motifs. Heraldic work has formed for me a steady output, and features a lot in my more recent work. Working in a wide variety of scales - from tie pins to ceremonial maces - gives me the challenges that make this profession so rewarding.

Specialist Techniques:

Sculpting in various scales, 3D digital sculpting, 3D printing, prototype/shortrun casting in silver.
