I am primarily a stone- carver but work in plaster for many bronze pieces. Since childhood I have been excited by ancient remains, fragments of carving and standing stones in lonely landscapes, my travels have taken me to many sites from different cultures around the Mediterranean, and the chance to work on archaeological surveys in Somalia during the early eighties increased my interest in small objects from the past. The landscape around my two homes has inevitably worked itself into my head. The gentle curves of the hills of South Devon and the stark limestone cliffs carved by wind and sea on Gozo, have all subconsciously influenced my carving.
