I am passionate about the need for wilderness and the plight of Britain's endangered animals. My animal sculptures and wall plaques focus primarily on threatened species in the UK, and celebrate thesuccess stories and are stylistically inspired by etchings, woodblock prints, early 20th century illustration and Art Deco stone carving. My earliest influences as a teenager were the Natural History, Archaeology and Anthropology museums of Cambridge, and they inspire me still.
