Other clients that I have created work for include , Jim Hensons Creature shop, Selfridges, Sony, Mercedes-Benz, the BBC, The natural History Museum in London and HRH The Prince of Wales.
In 1999 I was commissioned to create the now award winning statue of England World Cup winning manager, Sir Alf Ramsey. This project was to receive critical acclaim and a new direction in my professional career.
Working from my studio in the heart of the Suffolk countryside, I have become one of the leading figurative and portrait sculptors in the UK.
Notable commissions include those of Sir Bobby Robson in Ipswich, Cpt Mainwarring of Dad's Army in Thetford, Gracie Fields in Rochdale, James Herriot in North Yorkshire, Joseph Merrick ( The Elephant Man in Leicester and many many more throughout the UK.
A graduate of the University of Hertfordshire, I originally excelled in the TV , Film and advertising industries working as a professional sculptor, prop master and model-maker.
My 20 year career is very varied, some of which appear in many Hollywood movies including , Harry Potter, Clash of the Titans, v for Vendetta, The Borrowers, The Phantom of the Opera and James Bonds SkyFall amongst many others. I was also senior sculptor on the famous Thomas The Tank Engine series for 5 seasons responsible for designing and sculpting practically all new characters during that period.
I am currently working on another footballing statue going to be erected in Middlesbrough and have recently completed the statue of Ipswich legend Kevin Beattie that was unveiled outside Portman Rd Ipswich in December 2021.
I am absolutely thrilled and delighted to have been asked to be the sculptor entrusted with creating a fitting memorial to the entertainment legend that is Roy Hudd. A lovely, intelligent and funny man who I was very fortunate to have met at the unveiling of my Gracie Fields statue in 2018..
You could have knocked me down with a feather the day I received the phone call from Debbie, Roy's wife. She'd been looking for a sculptor and explained why she wanted me to create Roy's statue saying, "When a sculptor is asked to make a statue usually they haven't met the subject" But Roy and I had met so she thought I would be able to capture his personality. No pressure then!
