Born and educated in Great Britain, graduating from the Royal College of Art in 1966, I exhibited my sculpture in Europe, The United States and Japan before moving to The United States in 1968. I have taught at The Philadelphia College of Art, The University of Iowa, and The University of Kentucky, retiring from The University of Cincinnati in 2001.

I'm interested in geometry, and industrially developed and produced materials, as the subjects of sculpture. This has motivated me to design my sculpture on the computer. I hope to fabricate more of these designs in the future, and taught on these methods before my retirement from The University of Cincinnati.

As caretaker of DAAP, the first ActiveWorlds® zone dedicated to presenting virtual sculpture on line, I have enjoyed working with interested artists and students installing sculpture exhibitions on the internet, where we can meet for online production and discussion, and would appreciate hearing from anyone with similar interests.
