After 40 years in the Aircraft Industry I was offered Redundancy so I took the leap and tried something different. Quite by accident I discovered I really love working with wood and it took over my life. I sculpt with hand tools using many different woods creating very tactile pieces that delight the viewer and beg to be touched. I was lucky enough to be invited to exhibit in local Exhibitions and Galleries (indoor and out) with great encouragement from well known artists that I have been fortunate enough to meet along the way .
I love to use the grains and colours of the wood to enhance the sculpture. It is a journey of great energy and enjoyment seeing and feeling the sculpture come to life under my hands.
I try to use recycled or reclaimed woods when possible but have used special woods donated by a customer for their “personal involvement” of their sculpture with great success.
