A short history of Drillwork.

In 1999 I began to experiment drilling patterns into plywood, MDF and any other materials I happened to have lying around the workshop and backlighting them to observe the effects produced eventually creating the first complete Drillworks panels such as..

This led to something of an obsession with drilling and now in 2017, I have drilled millions of little holes for dozens of projects and pieces of work around the world.

Drillwork is an experimental technical art constantly in development, I have not yet come across another drill artist and therefore every piece of work is a step along an exclusive evolutionary path for me.
