Neil is an artist, designer and maker, creating from his workshop in Newtongrange, Midlothian.
Neil originally trained and worked as a Graphic Designer, but felt that his true vocation lay in being looser and less constrained by his medium. He made the bold decision to retrain and study two courses in parallel, Fine Art and Handmade Furniture. The years spent studying and working as an artist and designer have shaped his work today.
Handmade Wooden Boxes
Each box he creates is highly individual.
The process is part design and part intuition, focusing on the inherent beauty of the wood and giving it a second life through his work.
He creates a range of boxes including jewellery, heirloom, and occasion. Working predominately in beautiful Scottish timbers such as Ash. Beech, Birch, Elm, Hornbeam, Lime, Oak, Sycamore, Walnut and Yew with a choice of luxurious interior linings including leather, velvet, tartans and Harris tweed.
Neil’s painting are inspired by our unique Scottish weather and beautiful landscapes/seascapes
