I was born in Northern Ireland and educated at Sussex University, Smith College, USA and Cambridge University. I have carved with Abbas Hashemi at Wysing Arts in Cambridgeshire and with Boutros Romhein in Carrara, Italy.
My interests are mainly abstract, and I work in an essentially modernist idiom. In particular, I find myself fascinated by the relationship between forms and in the play of light as it defines form.
I have had a particular interest in the interplay between pairs of forms and, lately, in the harmonies of complex angular structures that reflect an interest in architectural structures and their meanings as objects.
I have also been interested in the representation of religious figures, and in the history of religious art.
Materials used: Portand limestone, various kinds of marble, including Carrara white, Baridiglio, Portoro and Travertine.
I offer workshops on basic carving skills and the opportunity to try working in the abstract.
