I am a furniture maker with over 18 years experience. I attended Oxfordshire’s Rycotewood College, before progressing to graduating with a degree in furniture design and cabinet making from Edinburgh College of Art in 2001. I work with private and commercial clients in and around Sussex

Since acquiring the necessary academic credentials, I have worked for a number of furniture and cabinet makers honing my skills.  I am also a qualified teacher and taught award winning furniture making courses in Sussex.

“No two projects are the same, I enjoy all aspects of furniture and cabinet making and take great pride working in partnership with my clients to produce bespoke
handmade furniture.”

I am a committee member for the Young Craftsman Competition  and in June 2017 I was invited to Judge the competition. This is a yearly competition at the South of England show in Ardingly, West Sussex. It show cases the craft talents of 14 – 21 year old’s and is a platform for them to start careers in their chosen craft. The category’s are woodwork, Metalwork, ceramics, textiles and design and technology.

I also contribute to the Furniture and Cabinet maker magazine which is published by the Guild of master craftsmen.
