After studying sculpture at Camberwell and Byam Shaw art schools in London I specialized in letter design and inscriptional lettercarving. I work in stone, wood, metals and other media and my interest is in the integration of text, material and form. I do mainly commissioned work, both public and private, and I exhibit regularly.
