  • Biography
During my career I have specialised in the design and production of free standing furniture for private clientele.

I strive to create designs which are elegant yet unassuming. As the furniture I produce will last for generations, I believe that the designs should be understated as to age gracefully.

The value I add to my pieces lays within the careful selection of timber and its arrangement specific to each item, this is paired with subtle detailing through time-honoured cabinet making techniques.
