The artist studied at Camberwell, London and is now based in Mousehole, Cornwall.
He works mainly in terracotta to make detailed, one-off pieces rich in texture and pattern: 'The technique I developed of recessed forms is more a play of shadows rather than the movement of light around the surface. The way I work has to do with the peculiarity of my perspective. Whatever a person does must show something of themselves. There is a world environment which fashions your ideas, concepts and attitudes. Most of my thinking comes out of the diversity of all that art is, and drawn from the enormous resources of the world.'
