About Me

I divide my time between making with wood and teaching at Timberbits. I have made over 30,000 pens and thousands of boxes which are sold through Wood Galleries around Australia and China.

I believe in continuous lifelong learning and have spent many hours with different Master Makers from Australia and around the world. 

My preference is to make smaller artifacts out of highly figured Australian timbers which I mainly directly source from Tasmania.
