Some of my work is available to purchase in my Etsy shop;
If you would like a specific piece which isn’t for sale on Etsy, just use the contact form below (or email firstname.lastname@example.org). I usually have many items in stock, or can make something for you in a matter of weeks (depending on waiting list). I welcome commissions and offer a full design service.
All of the pieces I create are entirely freehand carved or handcrafted in my workshop in the Scottish Borders using a variety of Foredom, Proxxon and Dremel tools as well as traditional hammer and chisel. Practically all of my materials are recycled/reclaimed or found on my travels around the UK.
To the best of my knowledge, I am the only person in the UK who carves and sells Buddhist mantra and symbol stones. I supply stones to the shop at Kagyu Samye Ling Monastery which is the largest Tibetan Buddhist centre in Western Europe.
I have exhibited my artwork in galleries across Scotland. The first piece I exhibited (‘Stream of Knowledge’) won the Creative Place First Prize at an exhibition in the Eastgate Theatre and Arts Centre in Peebles in 2014.
I am a member of ‘Animus- Art for the World Soul’ artist’s collective;
I am part of the creative team at Talliston House & Gardens (‘Britain’s most extraordinary home’);
