About Paul Vann
Based in Leicester, United Kingdom. member for 7 Years
Having spent most of my working life bent over a drawing board creating concepts and images for advertising campaigns, I have left my comfort zone to work in 3 dimensional wood carving.
An art form that engages and challenges me on many levels, the creative process is constant as I work mainly on ‘found’ wood from my native Charnwood Forest. The image in my minds eye of the finished piece usually has to be rethought and amended to avoid unforeseen damage during the reduction process.
I endeavour to create dynamic form rather than ‘life study’ carvings some of which are unpainted to allow the exposed wood grain to be a feature,
