I am blessed with a rich heritage of creative people;
engineers, makers and musicians.
This apple didn't fall far from the tree, and I am grateful for parents who suffered a sun-room regularly trashed by three kids for the sake of our games and art projects. They even turned a blind eye to me cartooning on the bedroom wall.
Unsurprisingly I pursued a career in architecture as a draughts-person, and this cemented my love of good design and detailing.
These days, I delight to make beautiful things for people.
The materials I most love to work with are leather, re-purposed if possible, and anything luxuriously vintage.
The South Island is where I was born and raised, and its raw and magnificent High Country remains at the heart of what I design and make.
