I make furniture for a day job, then nights and weekends I design and craft bespoke furniture/sculpture it’s an all-consuming passion. My designs start with a vision of a form or structure, I will quickly sketch it, rough form iterations exploring continuous ideas and evolving solutions. Visualising the mechanics, the dynamics of the loads and forces playing in a structure, I strive for integrity of form and detail within my work. Living with Hearing impairment, my designs are an attempt to show dynamism in form, energy, power and grace exalted in movement and light. The structure being transparent and solid, still and erratic, Explorations of ideas within the practical constructs of furniture. I exhibit my work at woodworking and art shows/galleries throughout Taranaki, New Zealand and Australia.
