Yew from the top of Aston Hill in Buckinghamshire, felled by the great storm of 1987.
Bog Oak dug from the ground at Conington Fen in Cambridgeshire, a tree that was growing 5000 years ago.
I am fascinated by the history of the trees that i work with.My work expresses the graphic and Sculptural potential of forms created by nature.
In the self-portrait the pale Yew sapwood creates two interrelated lines in space, the portrait is similarly cut and reversed
