  • Emerging Infectious Diseases

    I am delighted to see my work grace the cover of the January edition of Emerging Infectious Diseases magazine, a world class scientific publication from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention in the USA. I believe strongly that art can play an important role in humanizing scientific practice and making it more accessible, especially in a field as fraught and emotive as infectious disease.

  • Sales

    All my work is currently available for purchase. Please contact me for prices and shipping options. I understand that it is difficult to buy a work of art, especially a sculpture, from viewing on a website alone; I try therefore to offer potential collectors as much additional information as possible to help them make an informed decision. Furthermore if upon receipt you are not entirely satisfied with your purchase you can return it and I will refund your money in full ( less shipping charges).
