My Bio
From a very early age, making things with my hands has been one of my greatest loves.
My grandfather used to show me how to make wooden toys when I was a young boy and many of his words of wisdom have stuck with me.
I was apprenticed to a blacksmith for several years in the hope that I may one day become a bladesmith, but my path took me in another direction.
After spending five years in higher education and getting a degree I find my skills and ideas have been honed a little more.
Now, in later life, my interest in stories of the strange and unexplained has a great influence on my work. Especially tales from the folklore surrounding magical creatures.

Thanks for the watch. I'll be starting an ork army soon and hopefully be posting some pics as I build it. So keep watching.
You're a beautiful man, with a beautiful gallery!
