I was born in Cape Town and studied Industrial design. I have worked as a draftsman, a designer, a despatch worker, a teacher, a technician, an occupational therapist, a yacht carpenter, but always a maker. I have lived in Britain for twenty three years and have been making furniture full time for about fifteen years. I have completed three pieces of wood for the handling trail for the blind and partially sighted at the Manchester Art Gallery. Recent commissions are the vestry of Ringwood parish church, a legalium and a prie-dieu for Winchester Cathedral, commemorative chairs for Dummer church, commemorative seat at Northington Church in Hampshire, Artsway Gates, Garden seat at Sculpture at Goodwood. I am on the Crafts Council selected list. I have taken part in Chelsea Craft Fair 99-04 and exhibited in several Galleries around Britain. I was an artist in residence at Schovenhorst (Netherlands) for the ‘Boom in Beeld’ international woodcarving festival.
