How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

I would describe my work as producing unique turned wooden vessels and objects exposing the natural beauty of native and exotic hardwoods.
I create vessels and objects that have the clean, calm lines of a timeless form, inspired by many ceramic shapes. I like to use the intrinsic beauty of the native and exotic woods I use to produce tactile shapes which have function at the same time as transcending into unique pieces of art by using the woods natural organic traits.
Why? Driven by passion to produce the perfect bowl.
My working philosophy is ‘from the hands of the artist to the heart of the beholder’.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

It enables me to express myself and be who I am.
Being an artist means having the freedom of thought to create what I wish to create when I wish to create it, with hopefully someone at the end of the process to understand and like what I am creating enough to bring them enjoyment.
