CV & Education

I have worked as an artist over 30 years, following an initial period of study under the sculptor Arthur Dooley.  I delivered the Lecture; Liverpool : City Of Sculpture to an audience of over 700 people in St George’s Hall Liverpool on Monday 19th February 2008, as part of the Roscoe Lecture series. I am a member of the Royal Society of British Sculptors & have recently been awarded a Doctor of Fine Arts by Chester University.

'Propellors of the City' formed part of Sunderland City Council's winning entry into the 2015 Northern Design Awards, and we also contributed sculptures to OOBE's win the same year for Littlehaven Promenade and Seawall.
