I am a product of the Scottish landscape. My work reflects the ancient and the modern of my nations past and future. This work comes from the bog, the hill, the shore.
Woodturning - items produced using native hardwoods from sustainable sources.
Nothing can be more satisfying than creating a work of art from a piece of wood, it can be very therapeutic and rewarding. It is also nice to have a challenge, when asked to create something to a customers specification. The items I have created vary from Wooden Pens to Salt and Pepper sets.
