Hi there and thanks for dropping by to read this bit. I'll keep it brief!

I'm almost entirely self taught in design, always learning. I rediscovered the joy of learning new things, which I'd lost over the years thanks to working in a very dull but well paid job. I never want to go back there!

My weapon of choice is the laser cutter, but I also dabble with 3D printing. I trained in various disciplines including jewellery design, box making and stone carving, before falling in love with the immediacy of digital fabrication. It suits my slightly impatient brain that I can think of a new design and make it within minutes. I do a lot of making for other designer/makers so fortunately have four laser cutters at my disposal, as well as a Formlabs 3D printer.

Apart from the designing, I personally make and finish everything, and do the packing and posting. I even make the boxes for the coasters from raw card. I don't think there are many people who can say they do everything start to finish these days, though it's getting to a point where I will need an assistant.

My work is now for sale in 25 retail outlets up and down the UK, including the British Museum. I have shipped my work around the world as far as Australia, Africa and America. The Royal Family of Bhutan own a set of my Moroccan coasters! Someone once saw my coasters on the telly, being used to put a cup of tea on! I won an award from the Giftware Association at the British Craft Trade Fair in 2014 for my coasters, which continue to be a very popular item.

I am a member of ACiD (Anti Copying in Design), Giftware Association and Designers Makers.

If you want to buy in person, I do a lot of shows around the country - for an up to date list see my website.

Thanks for reading :-) I hope you like my work.
