David is a sculptor of national repute with work in both public and private collections throughout the UK.
Over the past 30 years David has developed his work from raw assemblage with found objects to the much more refined pieces he now creates. One thing has remained constant – the use of metal. David started using this material after visiting one of Sheffield’s many scrap yards while studying fine art in the city. He was instantly drawn to the colour and texture of discarded steel and the inherent quality it possessed.
David has a lifelong passion with nature and landscape – from early days of climbing and hill walking to mountain biking and fell running. He now lives in Holmfirth near areas of stunning woodland and wild and beautiful hills and moorland. The work he now creates is a response to this landscape and other wilderness environments he has encountered.
