A workshop based in South London, close to Borough for the past 4 years, and nearby in Southwark for 25 years before that.

Apprenticed to the famous Maples furniture makers, based in Dalston in the seventies, (wasn't so hip then, quite the opposite).

 

Having trained for 5 years, working on prestigious furniture for the great retail stores of the day, and even items for the royal family.

A period of travel then followed, upon returning to the UK and then further employment in other furniture workshops, I took the decision to set up my own workshop.

The classic training can clearly be seen in the work I produce, a mixture of past and present, form and functionality. The time spent training provided skills that for many are nowadays hard to acquire.

 

The workshop currently works with leading London based designers, whose client portfolio extends to most parts of the world.
