For me it’s all about clean lines, simplicity and succinctness. My work is custom made and will always be individual. No two pieces will ever be exactly the same and this is the beauty in handmade work.

Great design is functional, beautiful, sustainable and also individual. As a fine furniture designer maker I can create pieces featuring all of these elements. Function is not a term I use lightly. I am not creating art pieces. I make beautiful handcrafted furniture that works. My aesthetic is clean lines and good bones. Each and every component used is not only beautiful but serves a purpose – nothing is hidden. I work mainly in timber, our most natural and beautiful resource; and am careful in selecting sustainable species to protect our endangered trees and wildlife. I believe it is up to us as makers to stop the demand for rare timbers and promote sustainable choices.
