I started woodworking as a child but this was left behind as I entered my late teen’s. Fast forward another 20 years and I rediscovered the joy of working with wood.Starting out from my small garden shed, I once again began to create.
A spontaneous moment saw me purchase a small lathe and a passion began. I quickly took to woodturning and started to create a plethora of wooden objects for friends and family as well as my home. It was however in 2017 that I decided to focus on more artistic work where I could embrace my more creative side. I now combine colour, texture, and form to create what I hope some would consider to be art. I am often seen mixing materials, applying gold or other metal and even fire to the wood. I has also began to work with resin and this has bought another dimension to my creativity.
I decided to chronicle my journey as a woodworker by setting up a YouTube channel “The WoodWorking Shed”. This has led to many exciting opportunities and the chance to meet and even become friends with many fellow woodturners and artists around the world.
