During the last twenty years I have visited the Arctic over twenty times. I have lived and hunted with the Inuit people both in Greenland and in Arctic Canada. The times spent there have had a profound effect on me and how I view our World and society. The Arctic is under threat along with the people and culture; The very land is literally melting away.
My work is both inspired and informed by the combination of beauty and harshness of the environment, in the far north, as well as by the narrative work of the Inuit peoples.
I work predominantly in stone and mixed media using traditional carving techniques, to create forms that at first sight appear abstract but are often based on very real encounters in the Arctic.
I have a first class degree in sculpture and have had work exhibited in public areas and also at the Royal Academy.
Recent exhibitions include:

Finite Exhibition in Hadlow,
