Design Philosophy

"I believe that the arts have the capacity to enrich people's lives.

The field of fine furniture, where function and form are equally important, is particularly interesting to me. Designing furniture presents unique challenges: it has to look good, and must also meet the rigorous standards of functionality and durability. I welcome the opportunity to work with my clients in the creative process.

I look forward to creation of a design that reflects your style and taste. Each commission allows me to work with new materials in new ways; to make something with a content and look that is right for your home."
