About
In 1993, I was asked to do my first large commission for British Telecom at their HQ in the City of London. I was also invited to exhibit at Images du Futur in Montreal, where despite being a previously unknown, I was given the largest single exhibition space of any of the artists. My reputation for working on a big scale had arrived before me. Not many sculptors can claim to make really large sculptures. I can, and that really got noticed. Receiving the commission as well was a double success because that meant I was beginning to sell the work as well. Since that time, I have gradually found my reputation spreading further and further. You can find a full list of my major shows and commissions in my professional CV. I have received various prizes and won competitions. Most recently I have been listed in Who's Who for 2002. My most memorable experience was Lightforms '98 in New York. Today I have reached a point where I have to turn down offers I would like to accept simply because there is not enough time to do everything.

My long term goal remains the full integration of the light sculptures with computer art leading to the creation of 3D projections.
