Originally from Sydney, my adult life has been split between Australia and the UK, living in both rural and city environs. Most recently, after living in Edinburgh for 6 years, I returned to Australia and studied Furniture Design at the Launceston campus of the University of Tasmania. I am now living outside Braidwood, NSW.
A lifelong fascination with design and construction has led to many hours spent engrossed in art galleries and museums around the world.
The combination of exploring cultures of the world, and working across multiple industries, has instilled me with a broad perspective on life and a wide-ranging approach to tackling problem solving.
My design approach is influenced by an appreciation of the principles of the Arts and Craft Movement, and the aesthetics of Art Nouveau, both of which draw from and reflect on nature.
