Based north of Glasgow, I am a wood carver who specialises in sculptures and decorative garden furniture. I often work with fallen trees and salvaged wood, employing techniques to preserve and enhance it with minimal waste.
I first started carving when I learned how to make wooden marionettes. After becoming interested in bigger scale carvings I went to study the art with a wood sculptor in Lithuania at a traditional arts centre. Since then I have taken the direction of making figurative benches as well as smaller scale figurines.
I am working in partnership with a fantastic tree surgeon based in Killearn (www.treesurgery.com) who provides me with wood as well as the invaluable knowledge about different trees.
