About me

 

My artistic practice includes etching, sculpture, gilding, and woodcarving. Currently, my work sets out to explore the boundaries of verre églomisé. After working as an art director and graphic designer for 6 years, mainly for the BBC, I was looking to develop my own practice and when I was introduced to the Woodcarving and Gilding Course at City & Guilds of London Art school, I fell in love with the intricacy and tradition of the craft. During this time, I was awarded a Grinling Gibbons Scholarship by the Drapers Company. Today I take on private commissions, with selected work currently for sale at Harrods. I am very versatile in terms of working in a variety of mediums/materials and love unusual creative projects, Please get in touch for collaborations and commissions.
