Artist, Homeground Stonecrafted Limited, 2015- present 


As a self-taught stone carver, I set up all aspects of my practice and company, Homeground Stonecrafted. Through this,  I have gained experience in website design and building, graphics, branding, painting signage. My daily business involves crafting mortars and pestles, bowls and plates as well as more recently, small sculpture and finer pendants. I predominantly use power tools: saws, angle grinders, hammer and chisel, drills.
