"Being inspired by the natural environment I aim to create contemporary work with the woodland spirit intact - allowing the natural beauty to remind us of the origin of the source."

"The design ideas develop on the basis of combining modern human needs with an understanding of the material and are worked through with emphasis on clear clean lines and comfortable function - giving the user reason to be happy for a long time."

"The larger outdoor projects and sculptural constructions are developed in relation to landscape and site."

"Working techniques include greenwood skills, steambending and carving."
