After a successful business career, building a design and marketing consultancy, David decided to change course and spend more time in a purely creative role. A course at Schumacher College in Dartington some 20 years ago inspired him to rekindle his early passion for poetry and art in all forms. He now enjoys writing, painting, life drawing and sculpting, mainly in stone and bronze. 'With many of my sculptures, comes a poem. The words seem to suggest themselves readily after so many hours and days spent in the creative process. I hope the poetry enhances the pleasure of the eventual owner, bringing them closer to the piece. My other poems are ‘carved’ from less tangible elements.'
