Simon Heath - The Craftsman's Journey in His Words Part 2
Growing up partly on the farm and at home in a small village I was always in touch with nature, dogs and animal birds etc. Being not very bright at school I immersed myself in these things and also discovered I was quite good at art, and so all these things are of great use to me now.
The art makes sure I observe things always looking and studying form, which I have to do quickly, looking at local distances from eyes to ears to nose etc. Being able to scale up and down in your mind or from a picture (My dad always said I had a great gift to do that).
