Swinley began his career at the age of twenty as an apprentice stone mason, where he focused almost entirely on restoration. He then pursued a degree in Figurative Sculpture from the City and Guilds Art School in London. After twenty years as a self-employed stone carver, Swinley accepted a position at Architectural Stonemasonry, a division of Red Leaf Stone.

Swinley is grateful for this award and the opportunities it will bring.
