Delicate new woodcuts

I have been thinking about creating some smaller pieces for a while and I'm really pleased with how fine and delicate it is possible to cut my drawings. These are 35cm diameter plywood. The stained wood has a softer more gentle feel than metal.
They are in limited editions of 25 and will be in the Sculpture show at One Church Street Gallery in Great Missenden from 18th July to the end of August.

The Whiteleaf Centre sculpture commission

Last year I was commissioned by Artscape, the Oxford NHS Foundation Trust’s art project, to make a sculpture for The Whiteleaf Centre a new mental health hospital in Aylesbury. The overall theme was for work inspired by nature and in response I created ‘Shelter from the Sky’, a wall sculpture based on the silhouettes of tree canopies in summer. It is one of several artworks around the hospital intended to enliven the building and create a healing environment that works in harmony with the architectural design. It has now been installed by the main entrance to the building. I would like to dedicate this artwork to all dementia sufferers, especially my dad who died in November 2013.
