About Mark Richmond Woodcraft

I had not much time for school.
I spent three years at college studying art and design, also I learnt a lot of my art and trade skills from my Dad, whilst working at his carpentry business back in the Eighties.
I rekindled my old artistic interests around that time and began painting, which was soon overtaken by sculpting.
Wood is by far my favourite medium, and most,if not all, the wood I use is reclaimed. Dragged home from walks along the banks of The River Medway or scavenging like a skip rat from building sites and such like.
I began carving full time two years ago, now I can spend most of my time creating, be it either musically or artistically.
I have 4 children, 3 grandchildren, 9 guitars and a Boa Constrictor named Nathaniel.

Artist Statement

My true sculptures can often be reflections of the world I see around me, the truths that create and consume me, and lead me to question my perceptions of life. These thoughts can sometimes creep into my sculptures unbidden.
I like to believe that; I was created and so I create, It is what I have always been. I am myself when I am working, discovering, revealing, the beauty behind the bark of some once mighty Tree.
I like to find or be given the materials I use, ( wood mostly) The state of the wood, it' immediate history can often inspire me.
Frequently I let my imagination, and my tools, be guided by the splits, cracks and knots that have 'scarred' the woods surface.
