"My first experience with wood turning was 25 years ago with a small modest drill attachment lathe. I was completely enthralled by the different shapes and configurations that could be achieved, I progressed from this lathe onto a larger and more professional machine.

I served a five year apprenticeship in Carpentry and Joinery at The Brighton Technical College successfully passing both City and Guilds and the Advanced City and Guilds examinations. After 16 years practical experience I progressed as a freelance draughtsman in architecturally designed joinery manufacture. I found this experience inspired my designing for the more creative forms I am completely self taught in this type of creativity.

Having turned conventional shapes for a period of time I found the need to advance towards more aesthetic shapes. I now blend subtle tones of colour to emphasis the variety of grain found in wood. Each piece is finished by a process of a mixture of natural oils such as Danish Oil and Liquid Paraffin over a period of three days."
