About the Artist

Woodwork is my passion, unique is my trademark. As nature creates differences in wood I make creations reflecting what nature has provided. Most of my wood is local and fallen timber. My work is evolving all the time with new techniques, finishes and tools. I also teach turning and can make unique and special gifts as commissions. Pop in for a chat and view the work.

All I want is to make something others can appreciate.
Originally I was a woodcarver and spent some years carving with a master carver. Carving wood is a patient process, very rewarding and enjoyable. I have been influenced by Art Deco forms and the work of Grinling Gibbons. From these skills I started learning woodturning and learned a whole set of new skills and applications for creative wood-art. The range of techniques I use has developed over several years and enables me to carve, turn, paint and use pyrography to get the result I want to achieve. If the wood has inherent character already then I will make something to capture this. I source my wood from local places and fallen trees.
Last year 2 pieces of my carvings were awarded a first and a second in the International Richmond Woodcarving Show in Vancouver, Canada. There were 12 countries involved and 114 artists.
I always have work in progress and you can see this when you visit. Have cup of tea and chat.
