I left Southampton Art College in 1978 but worked there as a sculpture technician until 1979, after which I exhibited and sold my water colour paintings. In 1982 I began making earthenware sculptures and selling at craft fairs and eventually progressed to Porcelain (despite its enormous difficulties as a medium), for its unrivalled qualities of creamy white body, excellent colour response and wonderful translucency which I used to full effect in the delicate leaves and flowers of my wildlife sculptures.
By the late 1980’s, I was selling in London, Salisbury and Winchester and had exhibited at Garrards the crown jewellers. In 1990 I became chief sculptor for Goebel UK, making masters for the British Bird, British Animal and World Safari series.
In 1991 my “Zebra and Young” appeared in the World Wildlife Fund Catalogue. At this time I began selling my porcelain wildlife sculptures in Zelli in London and at the International Ceramics Fair at the Birmingham NEC. I also began working to commission.
In 1991 I suspended my sculpting career in favour of educating my son George at home. I resumed in 2006, with a different style of work but still working in porcelain and am selling at exhibitions, in galleries and for commission.
