I am inspired by the objects I find. These prompt me to make functional objects. The character, narrative and form that they hold all help in the making process. I try to make furniture that retains the character and history of the reclaimed objects and then to refine them, and juxtapose them to create characterful, curious and unique pieces. I love making, I trained as a sculptor, have been a practising artist for twenty years, and these one off pieces have all been informed from this artistic background.
