A training in traditional wood carving and gilding with a broad knowledge of the history of design and ornament sets a firm foundation for creating original bespoke woodcarvings. Continuing to study and learn about the form and figure used in classical sculpture and ornament through drawing and modelling helps to encourage a strong skill base and with the natural development of each carver. Working within the listed building and conservation sector also encourages us to strive to achieve the best possible results in order to add to our great built heritage.
