Self taught artist, Robin Wood, started out with a passion for detailed illustration and a love of the outdoors at a young age (including fixing old bikes). Appropriately named, Robin Wood naturally ventured towards a diverse career outdoors after gaining an HND in Countryside Conservation and Recreation – his first job was to establish a new nature reserve for the Suffolk Wildlife Trust. From nature reserves he graduated onto forestry, woodland management then tree surgery. Discovering he could use a chainsaw to carve wood, he has since not looked back. His creative skills in illustration, technical drawing – and further gaining a City and Guilds qualification in Mechanical Engineering – have all proved essential skills in designing and creating his work to date.
