Biography Fiona & Alec Peever


Fiona and Alec studied at The City & Guilds of London Art School and were traditionally trained in the lineage of Eric Gill. They moved from London to the Cotswolds in 1986 where they now live with their three children. They have an established studio in Oxfordshire and for over 25 years have furthered a heritage of workshop expertise, creating original artworks and undertaking bespoke commissions.

Alec designs and makes sculpture and cuts lettering by hand in stone. His award winning work includes monuments in churches and cathedrals; poetry in the landscape, garden features and public installations, whilst also specialising in individually sculpted churchyard memorials and architectural carving.

He was commissioned to design and create carved stone artworks and memorials for The Princess Diana Memorial Walk London, The Betjemen Millennium Park, Roald Dahl Foundation, Oxford University, Westminster Abbey & St Paul’s cathedral.

Fiona carves stone and models clay for casting in bronze. Her work is inspired by the wildlife and countryside surrounding her studio and also by ancient symbolism from a diversity of cultures.

She enjoys discovering natural shapes of stones and rock to influence the basis of her carving and transforming her drawings of the human figure into sculptural pieces.

Her work has been exhibited by The National Trust and is held in private collections in the UK, Europe and USA.

Fiona & Alec have created permanent artworks and architectural sculpture throughout the UK. They were commissioned by Oxford University to carve a series of new gargoyles for the exterior of the Bodleian Library, winning the Oxford Preservation Trust Award. They recently completed a large project of stone and bronze sculptures for a new school building in Highgate, London, winning the RIBA London award.
