Christopher Marvell was born in 1964 and studied at University of Newcastle upon Tyne, from 1982 to 1986. He lives and works in Cambridge & St Ives, with the painter Elaine Pamphilon."Walking daily through the landscapes around the studios gives a constant focus for what I am trying to make. My sculptures have a quiet English based quality of man and nature In the way that we hear countryside through Britten or Vaughan Williams. It is the business of observing acutely and recording - of searching for the line and shape and images. You have to make art from what you know about - a celebration of locality." Christopher Marvell
