Profile

Personal

I am an experienced and qualified Stonemason specialising in stonecarving and lettercutting. I am primarily a sculptor in stone though also enjoy working with wood. My experience includes commissioned memorials, house signs, inscription and conservation and architectural stonemasonry.

Education

 My passion for stonecarving and working in stone began while studying Fine Art / Sculpture at Loughborough College of Art and Design. I then went on to study Stonemasonry, Carving and Lettercutting  at Weymouth College, qualifying in 1998.

Experience

After completing my studies I went on to work for several lettercutters and sculptors, expanding  my experience and  skills in lettercutting and stonecarving.
I  have worked on several notable projects including lettering in the British Museum and a commission at Temple Bar, London. Historical buildings that I have worked on include St Giles Cathedral, Edinburgh and Croombe Park, Worcestershire for which I have done conservation and carving work.

Teaching

Alongside my own professional work I have taught groups of students in various settings  including Woodchester Mansion, Gloucestershire and students on a  Prince’s Trust Foundation. 

Location

I have enjoyed working in different parts of the United Kingdom including Oxfordshire, London, Edinburgh and Gloucestershire.

Since 2004 I have been based in Gloucestershire and have a workshop in  the Cotswold village of Miserden, Gloucestershire.  I am a member of Stroud Valleys Artspace and exhibit regularly in their open studio programme.
