I create unique pieces of hand crafted furniture
designed to meet the needs and desires of my clients.

I take pride in knowing that every part of a completed piece has been given my absolute consideration and attention to detail ensuring the highest standards of making.

As I hope you will see I enjoy making flowing curves that produce subtle highlights and shapes that encourage tactile interaction.
