I grew up in Wharfedale, beside the River Wharfe against the silhouette of Almscliffe Crag. With its Vales, Dales, Moors, Wolds and coast Yorkshire is a place that can only inspire.
Having attended the Leeds School Of Art in my early years I've spent the past few years throughout summer learning to carve under the expert eye of Marcia Bennett Male at Yorkshire Sculpture Park
In 2020 I took an opportunity to leave my corporate role to take time out and focus on carving. At some point I may return to my former career but for the moment I'm happy enjoying this precious time to truly explore and develop my passion
My inspirations are varied; Brutalism, Futurism and Cubism energise me. The unorthadox divsion of space, line and form fascinates me. A pioneering bridge by Robert Maillart is as equally interesting as Raymond Duchamp-Villon's Large Horse or Tullio Crali's Tricolour Wings.
