Thank you for visiting my is a brief history of my background...

I commenced woodcarving in 1971 when I moved to a secluded bush valley at Waiotemarama,South Hokianga,where I still live.
Initially I made wooden bowls and platters,then diversified into bone carving,chair making and relief sculpture.
In 1987 I started wood engraving on end grain Kauri blocks.
In 1993 I began multiblock engravings to take the monochrome element of light into the spectrums of colour.
A new medium was added in 2005 with experiments in cast glass.

Present themes are the sculptural forms of two Northland coastlines lying on their planes of light and water,the texture of the bush,remnant volcanic rock forms,the flow of wind over the sky and skeletal structures in involuntry motion.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
