Mike is 79 years old and lives at 2 Spinney Close, in Hurstpierpoint.   After painting in a variety of media for more than 25 years, he moved house in 2012 and, no longer having a large studio, with picture-hanging space, decided to give up painting, and to take up stone-carving again, having completed two or three sculptures some years before after attending a short course with Helen-Mary Skelton at Streat.  Her late father was the well-known professional sculptor John Skelton.

Fluted Helix
He has been attending the Skelton Studios’ courses ever since and, together with production of sculptures in his own workshop, Mike has accumulated a comprehensive range of work for sale.
Angular Angiela
His style initially was figurative items, but he soon decided that abstracts were preferred, sometimes influenced by the styles of other artists, especially Barbara Hepworth,  but usually he  chooses unusual shapes and varieties  of stone and just “sees what emerges“.
 
 
Ancaster Blade with Gold
Visitors to his workshop are welcome at any time, subject to a prior phone-call.
