I love wood. I love the beauty of trees and wooden objects. My grandfather was a master smith and I loved watching him work. I thought it was nothing odd that he used to caress the pieces of iron before he started working with them. It was natural somehow. He told me to caress the material to get a feel of what it wants to be. To hear it whisper. My work is special because I don’t force my decisions upon my creations but listen to them and coax them to reveal their secrets. I couldn’t work any other way. I believe that my pieces of furniture are unique and individual because I never make two of the same. I combine wood with costume jewellery, leather, paint, faux leather and fur, even gems if required. There is an element of quirkiness in every piece.
