“My aim and passion are to create beautiful, comfortable and personal furniture.
I graduated in upholstery from St. Gorans College of Art and Design in Stockholm, Sweden. Where I was trained in the traditional time honoured upholstery methods where I would use materials, such as webbing, spring, hessian, coir, hand-stitching, hair, cotton-flock and calico. I have a Diploma in Youth Art Facilitation from the Maynooth University of Ireland and also a certificate in Theatre Production. Where I concentrated on set designing/dressing and prop making. What I love about my job is that I get a chance to bring an old ragged piece of furniture back to life. It amazes me every time what new fabric and foam can do to a chair or sofa. The combination of hands-on heavy work and the attention to detail is something that I really enjoy. I get equally inspired by the traditional and historical value, such as the contemporary and new thinking in furniture design. My interest in art and design informs my work. I see the furniture as a piece of art.
I take pride in producing unique, high-quality pieces of upholstered furniture.”
