Wizard Detail

Welcome to my website

Hi my name is John and I was born and bred in Campbeltown, which is affectionately known as ‘The Wee Toon’, on the west coast of Scotland.

Starting with basic D.I.Y. woodworking, progressing to decorative rabbit hutches, bird tables and garden planters, I found myself influenced enough to attempt wood carving.

On purchasing some basic carving tools, I slowly taught myself to carve and I’m now hooked.  Now using chainsaws, chisels, power tools and basically anything which gets the desired effect, I am able to create a variety of sculptures.

My main passion is to carve Mystical Woodspirits of various sizes and shapes.  Using the unusual twists and flow of the grain, the faces evolve, making each carving unique.  I try to bring life back into the wood with character and humour.             

The vast majority of my raw materials are locally sourced and come in the form of driftwood, collected from the beaches on the Mull of Kintyre, storm damaged Scottish hardwoods, reclaimed whisky staves from Springbank Distillery and Bog Oak, reputed to be over 3000 years old.

Over the past few years I have attended various Craft Fairs and Wood Markets, along with my wife Fiona and occasionally my daughter Alix.  These have given me great enjoyment and feedback, encouraging me to develop my art further.
