About Me...

 

I started my training at Westminster University in 1987, where I achieved a HND in Ceramics. From there I joined Middlesex University – achieving a degree in 3D design. At Middlesex I found that working with metal was my medium, as ceramics was just not up to making my crazy futuristic inventions…

A good example of this was my surreal fully functional abstract telephone – which stood 1.5 metres high (which I managed to sell before it was finished)… This piece of sculpture grabbed the imagination of the media at The New Designers Show and featured in The Times, The Evening Standard and even The Financial Times. The piece also featured on Des-Res and was chosen to be in an interior for the William Blake exhibition (the one in his old house in south Moulton Street)

After leaving university I set up my first studio and started up a stall at Camden Market selling my plasma cut, metal fish candleholders by the pound. Soon I was discovered by the BBC and went on to create the iconic Newsnight Globe for their title sequence…

My reputation grew and I soon became known for window displays including a collaboration with Alexander McQueen – incorporating giant metal insects for the all 12 of Harvey Nichols windows.

My more recent work has been making animal and figurative sculptures, developing a portfolio of pieces for public art and private commissions.

I welcome any challenge big or small…
