I have lived in Canada, Saudi Arabia, N.Ireland and am now settled in Norfolk. I am curious and enjoy challenges, All projects start with rigorous drawing, then collage. Work may stop there but can go on to a maquette and sculpture. I have started the Belfry Arts Centre in Overstrand. Any advice gratefully received!

Details about work or recent projects

I am presently working on a 10ft metal and glass sculpture commission. Quite a challenge.Most of the glass work I have done so far has been for architectural site specific commissions.
