I am a freelance sculptor based in Milton Keynes. I sculpt and do various things
I am a freelance sculptor based in Milton Keynes. I was born in Wales and grew up in the home counties. I apprenticed for a short time with well known figurative sculptors Edward Russell, Lorne Mckean and John Doubleday after which i went back to school, studying Fine Art Sculpture in London, followed a little later by a Masters in New York.
As well as studying, I exhibited and worked in New York and had my studio in Harlem. During this time I worked producing prototypes for Warner Bros and sculpted for an Artist, which developed into a long relationship as I ended up running her huge studio in Soho (Manhattan). After about 5 years I returned to the Uk and rented a barn to make sculpture. I've been making, teaching and getting sculpture jobs ever since. Spending time in Uk, Asia and the middle east.

How I work depends on the job. Often i am asked to do sculpture work on site, but I have a workshop where I make my own work for exhibitions and private commissions. i have worked large and small and in a variety of materials. I have written a short article about commissioning a sculpture and the steps involved. I like to have a clear process for any commissioned work. The main thing is if you want to chat over a commission idea or just want some friendly advice, contact me and we can talk it through.
Great result, the Awards looked fantastic. They had the wow factor we wanted. Sara fulfilled all the criteria and was before deadline. Everything was straightforward and easy. It was a great success, we were thrilled with the Awards.

I am lucky to have worked alongside some of the best modellers I know, with a whole variety of sculpting experience in the sculpture department at Madame Tussauds,. They are part of a much bigger team that work together to create the waxworks. Check out the Madame Tussauds website for their latest gems.
