Being a visual person, design has always had a special resonance for me. The attraction of furniture in particular arose from my early awareness and appreciation of the clarity and directness of Shaker and Scandinavian design
I love the problem solving aspect of figuring out how to create the best possible piece to suit a client's needs. Whether it is a chair, table or bed - how the human body interfaces with the object, moves around it, uses it, and how it looks - is all considered.
The design process involves a give and take between the client and myself.. Since each piece is hand built in my shop, they take time but my customers say it is worth the wait.
Please contact me to begin a dialogue about designing a piece just for you.
