I’ve had a passion to create things for as long as can I remember, becoming an approved craftsman and learning many skills along the way, years of wood turning and furniture making followed.  Time spent working alongside a model engineer challenged the approach I took to my craft and gave me the insight to see things in a different way.  The more difficult the piece the more I was up for the challenge, always striving for that unattainable perfection.  Having worked with different medias, I have found my passion in recreating the things that I see around me with “spent items”.

My chief sculptures are made from recycled copper and brass, drawing on my experience with wood to make formers to help create these. Being mostly self taught has given a feeling of freedom about my creations and I have now arrived at a point I feel comfortable sharing my efforts.
