Having been a builder for most of my working life, I've always worked with wood. So when i retired and started to follow my artistic side, it seemed logical to work with wood as a medium.
All those pieces that i kept over the years, 'saved' from the rubbish or fire, now have a purpose.
It is very satisfying to take a piece of used wood, native or exotic, and handcraft it into something with a beauty.
I am mostly influenced and inspired by the world of Maori Art, both traditional and modern, which of course is uniquely New Zealand.
I get a lot of pleasure from making my pieces and i hope that you get as much pleasure from them as well.
While most of my works are one off's ( the ones i have made more than one of, do have slight differences), I am more than happy to make another one if you wish. Just contact me through Felt
