I studied three-dimensional design at Brighton Polytechnic, graduating in 1986 with a B A Hons Degree in Wood, Metal, Ceramics and Plastics. I now live and work in Lewes, Sussex. The inspiration for my metalwork comes from nature, geometric forms and from working with the metal itself. I often employ hammering and grinding to produce textures which reflect light in different ways. I like to make my designs as simply as possible, I often from a single sheet of metal, using just saw cuts and folds. Most of my designs are one-off pieces made mainly using hand tools. I use a variety of metals including, brass, copper, aluminium and stainless steel.
