I started work at 15 as a tuba player in the Grenadier Guards spendin 2 years on junior service at the Guards Depot in Pirbright then a year at the Royal Military School of Music Knellar Hall. I then spent 7 Years with the Colours at chelsea Barracks travelling widely.
After a year at a private hospital and another year as a driving instructor I worked as a General builder since 1984.
In 2008 I built a workshop andI started turning in 2009. I practice all kinds of turning and am happyest when I am atempting a project that is challenging and will “Have a go” at anything.
I take commissions for a variety of work and enjoy pen making and artistic turning.
I demonstrate at woodturning clubs and teach at all levels.
I structure lessons to accommodate the requirements of my pupils.
Much of my work incorporates piercing burning carving and colouring.
