From 1957 onwards I was trained at Guys Hospital to be skilful as a London-based Dental Surgeon. I also read a degree in Medicine and Surgery at St Georges….certainly the long way round for a Sculptor to learn Anatomy!!
I am now immersed in ‘The Arts’. As well as being a professional practising sculptor, I chair The Chichester Art Trust and am the executive CEO of NOA, The National Open Art Competition, and its Exhibitions. Both the Competition and the Exhibitions are run by the not-for-profit arts charity, Chichester Art Trust. We have a wonderful, enthusiastic team who never stop working.
It is against this background that I gained so much from the experience of working as a sculptor in the presence of great names like Elizabeth Frink and Chadwick who both cast with me in the Burleighfield foundry in Beaconsfield. Nicky St Phalle was often alongside me at Haligon who did many of my early aggrandisements in Paris.
