Winged Hare on Hazel
Barn Owl on Hazel
'Messenger' on Boxwood
Here are some of my recent Art Pieces, created over the last few months using a variety of types of wood. Most of these pieces are very small and highly detailed, intended as talismans and small decorative pieces. They feature some of my favourite themes -trees, birds and animals..and mant of them are decorated front and back or around the edges. Some include short verses I've written.
