many depicting areas in the north west of England. He has

Harrod's Picture Gallery and the Gallery Not, in London plus

sculpture is often quiet poetic. His shapes are simplified
and usually follow gentle, flowing lines. He works with the
character of the material, rather than totally imposing his
will upon it. He often works in bas-relief but also produces
totally three dimensional pieces and larger works for outdoors.
