The Artful Dodger is characterized as a child who acts like an adult. He is described as wearing adult clothes which are much too large for him. Like an adult, he seldom gives in to childish urges. He was a snub-nosed, flat-bowed, common-faced boy enough; and as dirty a juvenile as one would wish to see; but he had about him all the airs and manners of a man. He was short of his age: with rather bow-legs, and little, sharp, ugly eyes. His hat was stuck on the top of his head so lightly, that it threatened to fall off every moment—and would have done so, very often, if the wearer had not had a knack of every now and then giving his head a sudden twitch, which brought it back to its old place again.

Imitative or imaginative skill applied to design. Craftsman specialising in pole-lathe turning esp. I have a passion for woodlands and woodland craft. I was lucky enough to be bought up near the Green Wood Centre where as a child I got to watch and play with traditional woodworking techniques and pole lathes.
At about the same time I met the chairmaker and teacher Paul Hayden who also taught me a great deal, and whom I now teach chairmaking with at Westonbirt National Arboretum. I have been making and selling my chairs for over ten years, and was awarded Balvenie Young Craftsman of the Year in My chairs have sold to artists, craftsmen and people with an appreciation of quality furniture that can be passed on through the generations.
I have had the honour of being commissioned to make furniture for some great organizations including Green Peace, Small Woods Association and The Sustainability Centre.
I enjoy the balance of spending time in my workshop, in the woods and sharing what I know while teaching. These include free courses for people not in work.
