For me building furniture is a constant challenge. Of course, some days are easier than others. Inspiration for designs can come from objects, nature, other people, other art. The everyday experience be it at home, attending to the children, walking the dog, or working in the shop can provide the seeds for new designs. Building pieces speculatively allows me to challenge my skills and move my design development forward. When I work with a client I find the challenge exists in our give and take over details, in creating work that pleases us both. Each new piece of furniture address a perceived functional need as well as my desire to create an organized yet elegant and colorful environment. I aim to create furniture that is clean, fun and sophisticated.
