I commenced my woodworking journey to counterbalance the mental demands of my work in the critical health care industry. Importantly, it provided an outlet for joy and a means to creatively express myself.
My wood art creations are not merely shelf delights. They are meant to be used and must be an absolute pleasure to hold. Good form is essential no matter how exquisite the wood or any subsequent embellishment. Therefore the challenge I have is to make works that draw the eye and beg to be picked up and touched.
I have retired to Ballina where my workshop overlooks the Richmond River and the Nature Reserve beyond. I am, therefore, able enjoy my three passions, wildlife photography, fishing, and working with wood.
