I originally trained as a teacher in art, design and technology, and spent some time teaching and making bespoke furniture. My focus is now on creating new artwork that builds on a lifetime of working with wood exploring my own creativity and imagination.
I have long been fascinated by how wood veneers can be coerced and shaped, that the natural resistance of the material can result in surprising and unique forms. My latest work uses wood veneer to create wall-hanging images on an elemental theme. The process explores how form and shape can be combined with colour and the beautiful diverse textures and natural grain patterns of the wood itself.
