After a career as a landscape architect and urban designer, including nine years as a member of the South-East Regional Design Panel, Paul discovered stone carving and has been committed to it ever since. 

Paul carves mainly abstract, semi-abstract and occasionally figurative pieces in a range of stone types including limestone, sandstone, marble, soapstone and alabaster.  He enjoys the act of carving, the ring of the stone, the feel and even the distinctive smell of different types of stone.  It is a totally engrossing activity.

He is fascinated by the challenge of carving stone and revealing the hidden qualities of this hard old material that was created millions of years ago and will long outlast us.
