There is no point in arguing with nature as nature always knows best. In my case the wood will tell me what I can do with it and, if I have chosen well, not only will I be excited by what emerges but I hope you will be too. I create turned wood pieces in all shapes and sizes made from British and some sustainable foreign hardwoods. Wood turning was a passion of mine since my school days but only became a reality once I had the time, space and means to indulge myself. It was a Surrey Open Studios exhibitor, Paul Wilcocks, my long term mentor, who gave generously of his time and workshop to teach me the basics. A residential visit to West Dean College and also to the extraordinarily gifted Somerset turner, Melvyn Firmager, set me on my own creative path. I will be delighted to see you during Artweeks to browse or chat or, if you feel so inclined, to buy.
