WELCOME TO 2019
My 50 years Retrospective is now over. Works are available to see by arrangement. Those that came found the show challenging - a bit too graphic for some - see the etching below- not graphic enough for others. Very useful for me to see the years put together as this is not something that I have done before. Good sales of bronzes always leaves a glow.
North American sale: Cut Out Nude patinated bronze sheet. £7,500 to a private collector in Denver Colorado USA
A bientot "My Lady" has returned to the studio after 30 months on show in Cavendish Square Gdns,
The small bronzes start from £500 and carvings from £7,000
but I love to negotiate with an enthusiastic collector!
If you would like a studio visit just fill in the contact below and I will get back to you.
My work is deconstructed figurative. Linking between etching, bronzes, carving and painting.
