I grew up in a pro – creative family.  Both my parents were self employed and the attitude was definitely you can do anything/be anything you want to be.

Professionally this attitude has lead me initially from bone and wood carving to architectural model making then onto commercial sculpting, jade carving, jewelry design and art sculpture.

After being a commercial sculptor for the toy and hobby market for 10+ years I now concentrate on Jade carving and private sculpting commissions.  This shift allows me to explore more of my own ideas as well as have a deeper connection to the people my work ends up with.

I enjoy and have a real need to keep learning new things and develop my work/life skills.  I like to see my pieces developing both in quality and creativity each year.

You can see examples of my past work on my Portfolio page and my other site A Carved Piece (Pounamu/Jade carvings and Jewelry).
