I am based in Canberra, ACT, Australia and my background is in drawing and design. I have always been interested in art and craft, particularly wood and glass mediums. Starting as a leadlight and stained glass artist in the early 1980's, I have progressively moved to working exclusively in wood and over the last 10 years developing my skills as a woodworker, exhibiting my work and completing various private commissions for boxes and other woodworking projects.
Right from the start I had a fascination with designing and making boxes. Initially, these were made from glass and subsequently my efforts have concentrated on making high quality unique one off handcrafted wooden boxes and pinhole cameras.
I work with a variety of timbers, both Australian and locally grown and imported exotic timbers along with reclaimed timbers from the Canberra and local region when available.
