ABOUT

I am an Artist Blacksmith, designing and creating work through the process of forging metal.  My roots are the Scottish Highlands and Quebec, which inspire and focus my work through their culture and environment.
Creativity, problem solving, physicality, design and craft all go into each piece from a simple fire tool to large public sculpture.
While the work process is mostly shaping steel with heat and hammer, I use many different techniques both old and modern to get the desired result. Exploring and using different materials gives variety and a wider scope of work for myself and the customer.
Copper, Stainless steel, Bronze and aluminium are some of the metals while Hard and soft woods can often be used to complement the final piece.
