Welcome to all that I create by hand with wood.

No lasers, CNC, 3D printing or plywood here!

I work in solid native timbers, often reclaimed, creating intricate images that can take many hours to cut by hand with a scroll saw. Skill and attention to the material is required. Nothing is perfect, nor is it able to be reproduced endlessly at the push of a button.  All works are unique, one off pieces, drawing inspiration from the qualities of the wood. 

I studied Industrial Design, Craftsmanship and Furniture Restoration in the 90s. I then dedicated time to family and supporting young people with behavioural difficulties, but couldn't be kept from working wood, making chairs, guitars and cajon drums.

Now, I create art pieces suggested by the wood I find, the landscapes I love, their inhabitants, and their stories.
