I studied Design at Middlesex University and Central St Martins. I then specialised in Fine Furniture Making with John Lloyd and Fine Woodworking at The Building Crafts College, which is part of a medieval trade guild established in 1477. I have also produced furniture to my own design under the tutelage of award-winning master-craftsman Martin Grierson.
I am inspired by the elegance and standard of workmanship of a bygone age and yet my designs are firmly rooted in the present day thanks to influences as diverse as an appreciation of the beauty and purity of wood, the clean modernist line and the curvaceous female form.
I am a member of the Northern Contemporary Furniture Makers.
