£1000 — £100000


From my studio just north of London, I make individual pieces of furniture that emphasise structure and balance, and the idea of movement and texture.

Experimenting with technique and process has allowed me to challenge the normal preconceptions about furniture making and has given me a depth of understanding of the material and how far the boundaries can be pushed within my work.


Designed crafted

I will be showing works with a number of ceramic and glass artists in the society of designer craftsmen gallery in Rivington street during London Design Festival. The show will run from the 13 September to 27 September 2115.

Millinery Works exhibition

I was selected for the last Millinery Works exhibition running from 13 September 2015 till 10 October 2015, before the owners of the building retire. This show will focus on the top names making contemporary bespoke furniture.

Infinite human

06 Jul 2015
I will be part of an exhibition running from 06 July 2015 until 12 July 2015. The show is made up from a group of fine artists and myself. The focus will be the human body and the many real and abstract versions we see and interpret through art.
