I began woodworking at a young age thanks to my father who is a traditional coach builder. After leaving school I served an apprenticeship as a cabinetmaker and shop fitter achieving an NVQ level 3. As I imagine with most woodworkers, a lot of my knowledge and skill is self taught through many years of practice and my passion keeps growing each year. The furniture I create is influenced by many artisans although I don't reproduce others work, working to the rules of the wood, physics and my imagination is how I like to create. I enjoy working curves and shape into my projects often with the goal being furniture that is simple yet visually impressive.
