Biography:

My work is simple, functional and addresses the needs of contemporary life-style and celebration. I am wholly conscious that in commissioning myself, the client is looking for something which is original and will likely be a talking point as much as an article of function. ‘Anything is possible’ ‘Truth to material’ - these are two factors that inform the design process. All individual orders are fabricated and finished by myself. I benchmark and maintain strict control on large corporate orders.
