Sculptor who studied at at Goldsmiths and Slade: 'The ideas I always return to are basicallly organic and to do with the world of nature.  They are related to a primitive human need to explain my relationship with the environment...I am interested in horizons, seeing them not only as physically defining the land, sea mass and the sky, but also having a symbolic quality - the idea of what is beyond the horizon, an infinity - something outside our experience.'

In Cornwall he was Head of sculpture and fine art and vice-Principal of the Falmouth School of Art and Design (1976-91). His work was shown at the Penwith Gallery, St Ives, and at the Falmouth Art Gallery.
