My journey to becoming a professional sculptor of dogs began in 2000 when, for my own amusement, I decided to sculpt our family Jack Russell from a sketch I had recently drawn. I enjoyed the process so much that I went on to try more sculptures inspired by other family dogs. These pieces soon grew into a small collection which I took to The British Craft Trade Fair in Harrogate the following year. The dogs received a very positive response which encouraged me to explore the area of dog breeds for further inspiration and I soon became obsessed!
