Operating at the intersection between craft and art, I create furniture, sculpture and functional objects from sustainably sourced wood.
Having trained as a cabinet maker at the prestigious Rycotewood Furniture Centre, my work blends traditional craftmanship with the aesthetics of geometric abstraction and reflects a love of nature, the distant past, mythology and folklore.
Interested in tactility and critical of the stark clinical sterility of mass-produced contemporary minimalism, I draw inspiration from the pre-industrial past and embrace asymmetry, rugged biomorphic forms and irregular direct-carved textured surfaces.
Utilising the natural warmth and colour of wood and through the introduction of playful subversive details, I strive to make expressive narrative-driven pieces which delight both hand and eye.
For May Artweeks 2024, I will be exhibiting with South Oxford Arts (SOA) at South Oxford Community Centre near Hinksey Park (OX1 4RP). The exhibition will be open Saturdays and Sundays 12.30-18:00 (until 22:00 on Saturday 11th for our launch event) and 18:00-22:00 Tuesday 14th for our late night opening. Hope to see you there.
