I am slowing building up my portfolio as I take on more clients that not only want me to create custom furniture for them, but help them build rooms around those special pieces. I look at interiors like I do fashion: when I find that amazing pair of heels, I will build an entire outfit around them!

As a furniture designer, the majority of my time is spent sketching, getting the design just right, all the proportions and materials laid out, going through a dozen revisions until I’m happy (oh, and the client too) Here is a glimpse at some of my recent sketching…
