I am a Maine native, a designer and maker of custom furniture. I live on North Haven, an unabridged island in Maine's Penobscot Bay. I came to North Haven for a summer and stayed. Life here is unlike any place I have ever lived, with jaw dropping scenery, four seasons of ever changing raw natural beauty, to get here takes a boat or plane, and inspiration is never that far away.
Process and Intent-
Behind every custom piece of furniture there is a unique story, however every story begins with the same vision. To exceed the clients' vision of beautiful, functional, and original design. To create innovative pieces of furniture coupled with artistic applications for people to engage with their environment.
"I intend for each piece of furniture to be versatile; useful and lasting, while intriguing interest and engagement."
Each piece of furniture is handmade in a small scale wood studio. I strive to use a palette of native hardwoods. Every piece of rough timber is hand selected for its unique qualities such as color, pattern, and texture. Embracing the unique characters and colors of each material is an integral part of design.
I draw my inspiration from the vast beauty of nature that surrounds me. This inspiration can be seen in the angles, tapers, and design details but also in the joinery, how each piece of wood meets to create form.
While clients tend to have a general idea of what they are looking for in a sought after piece of furniture, they ask me to add unique details that make each piece truly original to enjoy for years to come.
