I first became interested in wood turning after picking up a Woodturning Magazine in 1992.
From this I purchased a small lathe and worked away on my own. Later in 1998 I did a course with the renowned turner Allan Batty which gave me a more focused view of what to aim for with practice, practice, practice.
At this time I was still working in the print industry as a graphic artist and met up and joined
Strathclyde turners some years later at an exhibition in the SSEC. On retiring 15 years ago
have found the inspiration to continue through the friendly guidance and advice form the members.
I find enjoyment from creating and problem solving.
