Born in England, I am still lucky enough to live deep in the Countryside, near the South West coast, surrounded by rich wildlife and stunning scenery.
My uncle was a sculptor and artist, and awakened in me a love of art, and the details there-in. At the same time, my father was busily ensuring I developed
a passion for firearms and shooting.
You would often find me in the metalwork or woodwork shop at school,
rather than needlepoint, or cookery classes!
| When I left school, I trained and worked as a sign writer.|
Other business avenues, eventually took my attention, flourished, and allowed me the luxury of
returning to concentrate on my passion for both hunting and art combined.
My hunting has taken me across the world, and allowed me to amass a store of experiences on different continents.
Wanting to capture these memories and images, the detail possible with Scrimshaw and
engraving has provided a natural medium for me.
