I love to create items of beauty that are uplifting, humorous, searching, moving and mysterious.
Working in Wood is a joy. It has life and depth. I pick up a piece of found wood, move it around, contemplate it’s form and line, and decide on an item, be it a bowl, walking stick or purely sculptural form. People and creatures are often incorporated in the item. I often remove a minimal amount of wood to reveal a face or form.
My backyard shed contains a myriad of tools and machines to make my creations. Chainsaws, drills, chisels and gauges – whatever is necessary to gain the desired form and texture. Most of the wood I use is found after weathering for many years, and it is only after I have cut into it that I can establish its type.
I enjoy sharing and selling my creations in Art Galleries, at exhibitions and markets. many people have asked to see more works so I have set up this web site.
Please contact me if you wish to talk about my work.
