My work has evolved from my past experiences working in cabinet and boatbuilding shops. I have always been drawn to bent wood, sawn curves and circles and looked for these things to do while seeking employment in the woodworking trades. Strengthening and honing my skills as a craftsman for over 25 years, I opened my studio in 2007 to explore my own design aesthetics.
I design and build unique furniture with Danish modern and nautical elements found throughout my growing body of work. From the sweeping curves of a chair or bench to the simple clean lines of a cabinet, I want my work to be noticed for its character and functionality.
The scale of furniture allows me to explore different forms and techniques I have learned over the years from the various shops. Most recently I have been incorporating design elements of steam bent wood. Finding new challenges in grain selection, jig building and steaming times, helps me keep myself fascinated with creating and sharing new work.
