I am a sculptor based in the New Forest in Hampshire specialising in African big game, mostly the big cats, and cheetahs in particular. I am also interested in the British wildlife here in the New Forest where I have found abundant and fascinating sculpture opportunities.

I am particularly interested in the muscle structure of the animals I sculpt and I aim to make them come to life for the viewer: the lion, top predator and deadly; the leopard, always the opportunist killer; the cheetah, ever watchful and a speed machine;  and wild dogs, the clever strategists that almost never misses their prey.

I use photographs I have taken in Africa, where I worked with cheetah and wild dog conservation, and also life study wherever possible.

My work is nearly always representational because this is what brings an animal to life for me.

I have sold internationally and I have exhibited widely in Britain. I occasionally accept commissions.
