About Me

Based in South Devon, I am a furniture designer/maker specialising in contemporary handmade pieces and have been making for over 20 years.

Using mainly English hardwoods, predominantly sourced locally, I create beautiful, simple designs that are made to a very high standard and will last for generations. The innate qualities of the timber are integral to the designs and over the years I have developed a deep understanding of wood.

I combine my work on commissions with small batch production and pieces for exhibition. I enjoy working with a free rein as it gives me a chance to be innovative and to develop ideas that have been germinating in my mind.

My work has appeared in several exhibitions at locations including Cheltenham, London and Devon. I am a member of Devon Furniture Makers, an organisation that promotes the work of the best makers in the county and also the Society of Designer Craftsmen which promotes and supports the work of designer/craftspeople in the UK.

I find my work very rewarding; there is great pleasure to be had from converting a raw, sustainable material into furniture that will be used, and hopefully loved, for many years.
