Born in London, John Barrow traveled to Peru in 1969. His original work contract was for eight weeks, but he ended up staying. John has always enjoyed woodwork, a craft he learned from his father. 'Living in Peru, I got to know a variety of beautiful wood types,' John explains. 'When I retired, I was finally able to dedicate myself completely to my passion, carving! I have designed my own machines and tools to help me work the wood in a different way.'
