My Design Life:

When I was young, my parents owned a sawmill. They made sheds, beach huts and
animal shelters. I spent a lot of my childhood climbing on log piles, drilling
holes and attempting to make bird boxes. Years later I went to university to
study 3D Design and during my third year I rediscovered my enjoyment of working
in wood. I graduated from Camberwell College of Arts in 2012 and set up a little
workshop with some tools I had inherited, others I bought or was given. For a
few years I worked several jobs while developing my business and then in April
2015 I became full time self employed.

My Inspiration:

I get inspiration from all sorts of people and places. From an early age I have
memories of my Dad making us furniture for the house so I have always had an
appreciation for handmade objects. My pieces are heavily influenced by the
material I work with and would be nothing without the natural beauty of the wood
I specifically select for the colours and patterns in the grain. There is
nothing more exciting than finding a piece of wood with an interesting grain. I
use clean lines and simple forms to best show off the wood itself.

My Design Heroes:

William Morris once said ‘have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be
useful, or believe to be beautiful.’ The quote has always resonated with me and
I hope to demonstrate this through my work. I have always loved the wood
sculptures of David Nash and the land art of Andy Goldsworthy. I admire the
variety of disciplines in which they both work with such skill. For the past few
years I have also followed the work of Brooklyn based artist Ariele Alasko; as a
fellow contemporary female woodworker I find the way she has built up her brand
and business really fascinating and inspiring.

New Collection:

Over the last year I have slowly built up a collection of pieces which sit well
together as a set and also can be bought and treasured individually. I have
recently expanded my range of cooking and serving utensils, adding in a set of
salad servers and a pie slice to the collection.
