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’.
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 enjoy it, and for that piece of art to bring them enjoyment.

After going to Woodturning evening classes in 1979, followed by an interruption of 35 years, by career and life, I took up woodturning again in 2014.
I am self-taught and having great fun with it. I have a family background in that both my parents were competent artists, which gave me an upbringing in an artistic environment.
Exhibited at Penallt, Secret Severn, Take 4, Angel Gallery.
