Unique hand carved stone sculptures
"I feel so privileged to have one of your sculptures. She exudes personality and a sensual serenity. To me she is not just an ornament gathering dust, but a living breathing form. It is hard to walk past her without stopping and taking a breath or touching her to absorb her calm energy."

My objective with every sculpture I design and carve is to create something beautiful, something that flows with its curves and lines - a creation that when the viewer observes it there is an internal as well an external shift in them taking them into a harmonious way of being. When I sculpt I am fully immersed in this natural state of being, even if at a challenging time during the creation I may step out as my head questions my actions!
I am a self taught stone carver, although I have picked up tips from some amazing stone masons & sculptors along the way! I do not work from a maquette, it is full trust in the flow of the creation. We can never compete with Mother Nature, but for me discovering a little mystery within each piece of stone I acquire both excites and motivates me.
A client once described my work as the New Art Deco, a contemporary style which exudes serenity with its curves and sensuality, yet for me there have been no definable influences on my style, only my own growth and awareness. I love keeping my style unique by only using my own designs to work from or by intuitively free carving, it is only this way that I can speak my truth through my work. This is not to say my style has not developed over the years - it is a wonderful and sometimes surprising journey!
Every sculpture is unique, designed and hand carved by myself, so every client can be sure they own a bespoke piece of artwork.
As a sculptor, I welcome the opportunity to create unique designs for clients with bespoke finishes that can be tailored to their wishes. I am passionate about my artwork, and I always look forward to an opportunity to deliver a creation that exceeds expectations.
I mainly work from a stone masonary yard in Brede, East Sussex and any one interested in a viewing of my latest work is very welcome to arrange a visit.
