I’m at the beginning of my furniture designer/maker career, based out of Nelson, New Zealand.
After completing the Furniture Makers’ Programme at the Centre for Fine Woodworking last year, I
am now interning at the centre whilst also focusing on designing and making my own pieces and
developing my personal design aesthetic.
Currently I am focused on building up my own profile and portfolio with my own distinct style, whilst
also continuing to grow my technical woodworking skills.
My dream is to one day be a successful furniture designer/maker where my clients fall in love with
the pieces I’ve created as much as I’ve loved designing and making them. I want to create unique,
quality pieces that will become family heirlooms.
Taking part in this exhibition would be an excellent opportunity for me to further challenge myself
and my designs. Additionally it would offer me the chance to be a part of something alongside some
of the best designer/makers throughout Australasia and the world.
