Derek trained at Acorn Industries, later working at Crayke near Easingwold. His early solo work featured a fish trademark, changing to a lizard when he joined forces with Martin ‘Lizardman’ Dutton in the 60‘s. Both had similar profound sensory impairments and they worked well together. Their lizard carvings are distinguishable from one another.
