First and foremost, I am a maker. I enjoy creating beautiful and decorative objects which are often inspired by my surroundings on a small farm in North Wales.
Farming is an important element which influences my work, I take inspiration from rope tying’s which are interpreted strongly with in my products through binding coloured thread and inlaying them into the wood. I also incorporate found objects such as sheep horns as decorative elements to contrast with the wood turned form. A lot of my work is created from reclaimed timber or my own off cuts from other projects and later
turned into beautiful objects with a purpose and meaning once more. Nothing goes to waste in the process of making, with the wood shavings being re-used under the chickens on the farm. My work is simple, colourful, tactile and decorative. I aim to celebrate the natural beauty of wood through ad
ding a hint of colour to attract the eye to it’s simple form.
