Having left teaching, to earn a living I worked on historical portrait heads to sell in a shop in York. I also modelled a number of medallions in wax - to be cast in resin-bronze. One medal was commissioned by the British Art Medal Society to be cast in bronze; the design was based on an idea about Magritte (found on The British Art Medal Society site). After a period working on collage - attempting to imaginatively convert haiku back into visual images, these were exhibited under the title 'Collage' in York University and elsewhere. I also made a series of small metal sculptures of which all but one are now in Cyprus or the USA.
