I am a maker for the meaningful moments – creating bespoke memorials, gifts and art in stone.
I love to teach, learn from and collaborate with others. I find working with people inspiring, interesting and fulfilling.
An avid reader, I adore words and playing with their meaning. I am fascinated by optical illusions and how we interpret the world. I have a curious nature and want to understand everything on a deep level. I explore history, nature, science and culture for answers, finding the original sources of inspiring work where I can and developing my own interpretation.
My initial goal in starting a piece is to uncover its core meaning and purpose. For client-led work I ask questions in order to tailor everything to their tastes and connect every possible element to their story. For personal work, I use the core artistic concept as the touchstone of every decision for the piece.
I do extensive research to make sure my design is as skilful and resonant as possible. I consider the practicalities of anything I make, choosing the details carefully to balance form and function. I blend traditional skills with modern techniques and technology, always aiming for the best result possible.
