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 and other art. The everyday experience 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. Each new piece of furniture is built to address a perceived functional need and satisfy my desire to create an organized yet elegant and colorful environment. I aim to create furniture that is clean, fun and sophisticated.
