A WARM WELCOME TO MY WEBSITE

This website tells you a little about me and I hope you can enjoy some of the stories and videos about my various sculptures.

If you want to find out more, please look on the menu at the articles and the London Live video interview, which is fun and informative.

 Spirit of Freedom - Bronze Sculpture

From 1957 onwards I was trained at Guys Hospital to be skilful as a London-based Dental Surgeon. I also read a degree in Medicine and Surgery at St Georges  ….  it is certainly the long way round for any Sculptor to learn Anatomy!!

Speak to us of Crime and Punishment

Dentistry is definitely an art form as well as a science. My appreciation of the arts is wide ranging and the progression from Dental Surgery to Sculpture after over 40 years in practice, in a massively busy London practice, was really very easy.

I am now immersed in ‘The Arts’. As well as being a professional practising sculptor, I chair The Chichester Art Trust and am the executive CEO of NOA, The National Open Art Competition, and its Exhibitions.  Both the Competition and the Exhibitions are run by the not-for-profit arts charity, Chichester Art Trust.  We have a wonderful, enthusiastic team who never stop working.

The charity specialises in nurturing creativity in artists and photographers who are resident and working across the entire United Kingdom, as well as in Ireland. NOA annually has up to 4,000 entries for its annual competition. Please do explore the website.

 

It is against this background that I gained so much from the experience of working as a sculptor in the presence of great names like Elizabeth Frink and Chadwick who both cast with me in the Burleighfield foundry in Beaconsfield.  Nicky St Phalle was often alongside me at Haligon who did many of my early aggrandisements in Paris and it is through these experiences that I have progressed and so much enjoyed making work for governments, corporations and collectors alike.

It was an honour that Susse Fondeurs cast for me in Paris

and Rhodia Dufet Bourdelle displayed my work, ‘STERLING’ in the Musée Bourdelle

‘STERLING’

and I have worked with some of the best known UK foundries, Pangolin, Morris Singer, Castle and Talos, all of who have been a pleasure to be associated with.

I am very grateful for the direction in which life has taken me.  Now I would love you to enjoy looking at, and hopefully owning, some of my work. I can’t stop designing and creating it and I work endlessly at new pieces and love to take commissions.
