Exhibition at The Table Gallery in Hay on Wye

Exhibition at The Table Gallery in Hay on Wye



I was born and grew up in Co. Kilkenny, Ireland. I moved to London in 1988. In 1994 I moved to mid Wales where I am presently living and working.

I am primarily a stone carver but also use bronze, wood, clay, wax and other materials.

I also work as a letter-cutter in stone. Often I combine carving and lettering, particularly in commissioned work.


I studied at Winchester School of Art (Foundation) 1980-81

and Leeds College of Art (BA Fine Art) 1981-84.


I have shown regularly since graduating.

In 2008 I was part of a small group of sculptors who set up and ran a ‘back yard’ bronze foundry using the ‘lost wax’ process. We had three years of successful casting and patinating.


In the last five years, I have been on two residencies at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre, Co Monaghan and one at Cill Rialaig, Co Kerry, Ireland. Also, I took part in the 2013 Festival of Stone in Bristol.
