His family had close links with sculptor Eric Gill in the 1920’s and it was this relationship which inspired and encouraged Ev to embark on a career as a sculptor. He did this initially (in the 1970’s) by working on commissions for private clients in liaison with landscape architects in Kent. The success of these early commissions soon led to exposure to a wider audience. He created pieces over several years for award-winning gardens at the Chelsea Flower Show after which followed some prestigious public and corporate commissions.
