Since the beginning of my furniture design degree (BA) I have become progressively more passionate about design and making. The processes from sketching to technical drawing and modelling to prototyping have become what drives me to problem solve and in turn give me a great deal of satisfaction from my work.
During my studies, I have been fortunate enough to work with and receive critical feedback from head designers of companies such as Hitch Mylius and John Lewis. The opportunities have proven extremely useful in the way I think about my work, how I receive feedback and most importantly how I progress from that feedback.
I discovered my interest in design and fine making while working as a site carpenter. I was never pressured to make my work look tidy or aesthetically pleasing, if the work was structurally sound then no more time should be spent on it.
