Phoenix Rising from the Flames

I see my self as wearing several woodcarving hats:

As a carver I have been woodcarving since 1975, originally studying under a master woodcarver: the late Gino Masero, and am an associate member of the Master Carvers Association.
My work is mainly commissioned and ranges from architectural to figure carving; including furniture, lettering, bedheads, fireplaces, mythical and abstract sculpture.

As a teacher I have been running woodcarving classes in England for many years. I am on the faculty at the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Maine, USA where I teach regular carving courses.

As a writer I am the author of a number of books on woodcarving. A complete list can be seen on my website.
