    Keith studied art for five years before doing his National Service. He came to Cambridge on a two year contract to help David Kindersley carve a large relief mural at the American Cemetery just outside the city. He then stayed as an assistant in the Kindersley workshop for a further two years. In 1957 Keith started out on his own and for the next fifty years lived mainly by his commissions. His work is on cathedrals, churchyards and public buildings at home and abroad. As well as work in private collections he has collaborated with Ian Hamilton Finlay for over twenty years. Now Keith has retired but he is still working on his own work as it is his main interest in life . So he will be part of Cambridge Open Studios this year as he has over the last thirty or so years.
