Originally from the Glasgow area in Scotland, I now live in the beautiful area of Moray, Northern Scotland. Surrounded by Mountains on one side and the coast on the other. Nestled on the edge of the Spey Valley we are spoilt with stunning scenery and wildlife, not to mention the 50 + whisky distilleries in the local area.
With a background of over 30 years in Mechanical Engineering, I was first introduced to Woodturning in the early 90’s where I, like many, started off with cheap and cheerful equipment trying to learn by myself from books, magazines and videos. This went on for a few years till work commitments, Family life and the seemingly lack of progression got in the way. Unfortunately, at this point I unwittingly sold all my turning equipment.
A few years later I caught the “BUG” again and have not looked back since.
With the addition of colour and texture to my work it has opened a lot more avenues to the direction I am heading.
In 2016 I was lucky enough to pass as an AWGB accredited Demonstrator and Instructor and then the following Year (Aug 2017) I was accepted onto The Register of Professional Turners which for me has been the highlight of my turning career so far.
I have been fortunate to demonstrate at both local, National and International events, the latter of which I would like to do more.
