After completing a 3yr course studying Art & 3D Design I decided to set up my workshop at my home in Brayford a small village which ;ies on the edge of Exmoor National Park. Being surrounded by the wild beauty of Exmoor and the rugged coastline of North Devon it is not hard to find inspiration.
The sea features greatly within my work using water based dyes which I mix and blend for my coloured pieces. I like to keep materials as natural as possible and source where possible wood which has grown in or around Exmoor with the exception that I am given wood from other localities. I mainly use Ash as my preferred choice although Sycamore, beech and sometimes Oak as they are more readily available. Working with the grain, type of wood and any interesting feature the wood may reveal makes each piece unique and I feel very privileged to be the first person to see “Beneath the Bark”, for me this form of recycling continues to be an inspiration.
I like to keep my work simple and minimalist as possible creating flowing curves which are visually appealing and pleasing to the touch. Having exhibited in galleries throughout the UK I have been privileged to be awarded silver in The Craft and Design on line selected awards whilst also taking part in exhibitions at the Devon Guild of Craftsmen at Bovey Tracey.
