He studied at Liverpool School of Art in the 1960s, and worked as a book illustrator and graphic designer, before turning his talents to clay. This may explain the fantasy element of his work, which is always intriguing and even psychedelic. He lives in Newtown, Wales, and works from home, regularly raiding his kitchen for objects that he can use as moulds. He also models forms directly. His works reflect his passion for architecture, machines and ancient civilizations and often incorporate technical elements such as levers and pulleys. Frogs, snakes, and turtles are just some of the animals that are found resting on his sculptures often amongst rainbows and stars.
