After working as a drama school trained stage manager for 10 years, gaining strong organisational skills and excellent track record in people and project management, basic skills in set design and build, fostering technical ability and creativity
in design. I have retrained as a designer and maker of furniture and wooden crafts, graduating in July 2015 from the Chippendale International School of Furniture in East Lothian, Scotland.
My creative vision is to make beautifully functional well-made pieces of wooden furniture with both practical purpose and artistic merit. My work is based on strong design features, executed in high quality and sustainably sourced (locally when possible) wood.
