Working with wood and woodturning has always been an important part of my life and although it was not my main career it remained an integral part of my leisure time and I took every chance to increase my skills. In 2001 I decided to immerse myself in woodturning as a full time business.
The woods I use are almost entirely from recycled and sustainable sources. Some have been rescued from the log pile or from local orchards, farms and gardens. Inspired by organic forms and natural surroundings I allow the beauty of the wood to suggest the shape and purpose of the piece.
I take commissions for special items and offer 1 to 1 tuition at my workshop in Long Sutton, Nr Langport, Somerset.
I am a Registered Professional Turner, a member of The Somerset Guild of Craftsmen and the Association of Woodturners of Great Britain.
