"You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream" C.S. Lewis.
I've had a passion for wood all of my life, but only recently felt the guiding hand of my grandfather, Master Cabinetmaker at Gillows, on my shoulder. Leaving an office job during the pandemic, I found my calling working with my hands, wielding chainsaws to transform tree stumps into sculptures.
I’m a member of The Oxford Sculptors Group and also exhibit during Oxfordshire Artweeks, near my home town of Watlington. Attending Country Shows has been a very positive way of connecting with people and discussing anything and everything countryside-related.
My varied designs are inspired by local flora and fauna, and continue to evolve. My best work is in cedar, pine and other soft sustainably-sourced woods, which I obtain from friendly tree surgeons. I also have a few favourite saw mills when I require a specific piece of wood for a commission.
