Working with my hands has been a lifelong trait leading to carving in stone, curse or blessing. I end up at the bench carving directly into the stone with little knowledge of the outcome. I am constantly drawn to the human form, more recently to Heads.
Nigel has spent his life working as an artist in many different media, from illustration in fine pen and ink drawings to woodcarving and turning.

He has lived and worked in Devon for the last 35 years. Nigel has sculpture in private collections in the UK and abroad.
