Painting & Drawing / Wood & Willow • Blue Route

I am an artist working with wood, with a deep connection to the natural world, especially woodlands and forests.

My Practice

I love to work with found, unseasoned wood, using a lathe to produce my work which I then enhance with detailed drawings using a hot wire.

Tools & Materials

My studio is located a short distance from Drummore in Kirkmaiden, opposite the parish church and iron age fort, with far reaching sea views of both the Irish Sea and Luce Bay.

I have two workshops where I prepare wood ready for turning on the lathe. I work with a lot of found wood, including large pieces of sea bleached driftwood which is the main wood that I prefer to use.

I also use a pyrography machine to burn nature inspired designs onto my pieces which are then finished with a natural oil to bring out the beauty of the wood.

During Spring Fling, I will be demonstrating various turning and pyrography techniques. Visitors will have an opportunity to have a go themselves at burning a design onto a wooden blank.
