Biography

I am an IT man who discovered engraving 20 years ago.  A keen appetite for experiments which succeed about half the time.  Glass sellers trophy for first timers in 1987. Exhibition choice piece in 2008.

My preference is deep cutting with unusual shapes or solid blocks.  I have not done regular commissions but hope to make time in the future
