JJ was born in Cambridge, UK. He has worked in electronics design, print plate making and Graphic Design studios.

During 1975 he became a self-employed Graphic Designer working with his wife and brother trading as Vincent Design. Projects also included 3D model making and display work.

In 2004 he embarked on a mission of discovery into the world of sculptural ceramics. He was hooked and became a member of Anglian Potters where he found the possibility to display and sell his ceramic animals.

All his animal sculptures are individually hand-built with Stoneware clay, finished with stains and oxides. All have a certain degree of realism but with the emphasis on character.

At various times, JJ’s menagerie of animals has included orangutans, gorillas, chameleons and whales, not to mention, sheep, pigs, horses & cows.

Currently he is concentrating on editions of hares, cats and dogs which he regularly supplies to a small group of UK galleries.

When time allows he tries to fulfil requests for different animals and exclusive pet portrait commissions.
