Teddy was born in East London in 1961. Teddy was a fishmonger until 2009 until a critical illness forced a change in direction. Rehabilitation included walks along the beach. Teddy began to collect driftwood pieces. These pieces were configured and painted on alongside other objects that were found. Teddy was invited to show these pieces in 2017 in the Brighton Festivals and some of the works got sold !.
From then, Teddy has been involved in numerous exhibitions and his work has been sold both nationally and internationally. Content and context on the multi media pieces are from a lifetime of observation, music, the arts and sub-culture. Where possible, all materials are recycled, found and up cycled. The celebrated ceramicist, Kate Malone recently commented, “ such fun and character in this work evolved within the process of making…everything coming together in one lovely, enjoyable vision. A bit like life if we are lucky! I love the sense of fun in this work
