“I trained as a stonemason and architectural carver in Dorset, before working for five years at the Richard Kindersley Studio in London. I moved to Norfolk and set up my own workshop in 2000.
It was not until my five year apprenticeship at the Kindersley Studio that I started to gain a real understanding of letterforms. Richard’s father, David, was trained by the typographer and sculptor Eric Gill. I draw inspiration from this tradition, and also from studying the work of modern calligraphers, ancient inscriptions and natural forms. My training as a stonemason and architectural carver coupled with my letter carving apprenticeship have instilled in me an interest both in fine lettering and also in working in a three dimensional way where possible.”
