Born, raised and still live in Staffordshire (well, technically born in Shropshire (Shifnal) but family lived in Staffs, so you know....) I have been sculpting professionally since 1984 and, as well as producing work under my own name, have worked with companies including Coalport China, Wedgwood, Royal Doulton, Danbury Mint, Holland Studio Craft, the Dragonsite.com and most recently Nemesis Now.
I guess I am probably best known for being the creator and author of the fantasy range Enchantica.
I'm nuts about history, folklore, legends, wildlife and nature - and completely fascinated by fir cones, natural engineering at its finest and most elegant.
Obviously I'm into fantasy art - far too many influences to mention here but I suppose I'd have to credit Harryhausen, Frazetta and Rackham for sowing the seeds.
I am currently reading The Flame Bearer by Bernard Cornwell
