Years experience 

I am a sculptor and illustrator of the Bible. I fell in love with our 'story board' cathedrals. What grabbed me was the way the stories are expanded by the carved illustrations. I work in the community sharing my ideas with others. I use this listening and communication process to develop my work, which is aimed at telling the Christian story. I carve wood and stone, working in public places, sharing and participating in the life of the place.
