I am a sculptor / woodcarver taking inspiration from the form of the log rather than forcing my ideas on squared timber. I allow the wood to tell me what to carve as I search for the hidden story. I prefer the human figure but my work includes a wide range of subjects. I specialise in Corporate Art and Private commissions I prefer to start from the natural form of the log, tree or root as these have natural curves and strengths that help to give life and movement to my figures. With square cut timber, these elements are not so evident, and the figure can easily look stiff like a wooden toy soldier.
