Studied Interior Design and 3D Design at Medway College of Art 1974-78I worked as a sculptor in the special effects dept for the BBC TV before setting up own studio in 1981, producing sculptures for the advertising market. My first opportunity in the world of fine art sculpture was being commissioned to sculpt 13, 9ft classical sculptures for The London Pavilion, in Piccadilly Circus, London. Elected as a member of the Royal Society of British Sculptors in 1998 and voted on to the council in 2000. Activly involved with the promotion of sculpture organising many group exhibitions.Having gained a reputation for Classical sculpture, I wanted to promote the more creative aspects of my work, and set about exhibiting my abstract sculptures in galleries, sculpture parks, Manchester Art House, Sausmarez Manor in Guernsey, and a major London show with Andrew Logan. Many large commissions followed:Sainsburys Lavender in Wallington,London. The Irises, a 5mtr bronze for a private house, and the Trafford Centre sculptures which was the largest commission in the U.K during 1998.
