I have a general idea of what it is that I wish to produce and I choose a piece of stone that will lend itself to that idea. However, things can change and evolve determined by things as diverse as light and mood.
I have had work exhibited in The Williamson Art Gallery in Birkenhead, at Brimstage on the Wirral and at the Hoylake Festival of Firsts.
I have carved memorial stones, celebration lettering, hands, greenmen, lizards, dragons, faces and sun dials, whatever takes my fancy. Some things can takes as little as a couple of days, some things can lie half carved for months. Some of the preparation time is spent looking at the stone with a mug of good coffee in my hand, a part of the whole process I particularly enjoy.
I look forward to speaking with you.
