Current Work

Current Work

Current work includes sculptural and/or functional garden/conservatory pieces and some decorative domestic ware. Some of the most recent output has been larger scale work particularly for a garden setting. Many of these are planted and can be up  to 2m high. Much of the work incorporates landscape-based abstraction that reflects and responds in particular to the Lakeland Fells that lie on his doorstep and on which he enjoys walking and climbing.

Work generally available from:

The Old Courthouse Gallery, Ambleside, Cumbria
Booth House Gallery, Holmfirth, West Yorkshire, England
The Gallery Upstairs, Henley-in-Arden, Warwicks.
Burnham Grapevine, Norfolk, England
The Gallery at Bevere, Worcester, UK
