After graduating from Sheffield College of Art, I took up an offer to serve as an apprentice in conservation, at Lincoln Cathedral.  This exposure to the excellence of medieval carving led me to pick up a chisel and learn to carve for myself.  My conservation work has provided me with both income and opportunity, at times taking me overseas, motivating me to start my own company over 25 years ago, combining fine art with conservation.
