Choosing wood as a creative medium was natural for me. I am the son of a carpenter and shipwright (boat builder) who, throughout my childhood, taught me that wood is one of the most addicting and user-friendly materials an aspiring artist or craftsman could work with. While growing up in my native Barbados, I mimicked every move, cut and style of woodworking my father performed with a variety of finely tuned hand tools. I developed good skills in the process. My art form is woodturning, I create one-of-a-kind artistic hollow formed wood vessels from a carefully selected exotics woods. All vessels are are created with a nominal wall thickness of 3/16", the surfaces are protected with several coats of a high quality lacquer.
