stone and wood
The inspiration for my work is animals and the natural world.

The inspiration for most of my sculptures comes from a deep understanding of animals, developed over years of study and practical work.  My carved animals are not simple facsimilies of the original form - I try to capture a depth of feeling, emotion, and movement that makes them 'Living Stones'.

I work using mainly hand tools, following the story outlined in the rock or wood.
