January 2014

A new year and lots of exciting irons in the fire.
I submitted two pieces for Royal Cambrian Academy’s open exhibition, beginning on 11th January, and was thrilled when both pieces were accepted. Do go along to the exhibition in Conwy, North Wales, as it’s well worth a visit.
More good news – I’ve been asked exhibit at the Palace Art Fest in Hereford (24th May – 1st June).
And finally (for now), Sculpture Cymru will be installing their ‘Journey’ exhibition at the Gas Gallery in Aberystwyth ready for the opening on the 26th February. I will be showing ‘Rest by the Wayside’ – a twice life-size figure made of steel and timber … do take the time to visit this exhibition.

Exhibitions 2013

2013 was a year which saw work in a few exhibitions. The first was at Wyndcliffe Court near Chepstow – a beautiful garden backdrop for three ‘Elegance and Form’ sculpture shows. Alex Brown and Christine Baxter put together a wonderful exhibition.

In July I exhibited two pieces: ‘Ablation’ and ‘Duet’ at the ‘Inspired’ exhibition at Ashton Court in Bristol. There were some stunning pieces at this exhibition of contemporary works.

Finally, in September, the annual h.Art (Herefordshire Art Week) was a great success. I sold a number of works and won two commissions as a result – I will definitely look at this again in 2014.


September saw the installation of ‘Sila’, a large marble carving commissioned by a client in Kent to celebrate 25 years at their home. This piece began life nearly a year ago, but bad winter weather slowed the polishing process down as the water froze on the stone!
