I have had a lifelong love of design and my training began in earnest as a young child ogling and drawing cars. I was especially obsessed with the perfecting of their proportions. I was also an avid tinkerer, spending hours on weekends in my dad’s workshop. My first career outing was an apprenticeship in carpentry and joinery in my hometown of Geraldton, WA.
Wanting a more design-focussed vocation, I then decided to study architecture at uni and in my final semester, I chose to do an optional furniture design/making unit. Furniture had never been on my radar, but I discovered that the medium of fine furniture had the perfect intersection of designing and making, where the two were not divorced from one another and in which the developing of beautiful proportions was integral. As a result, I’ve found myself at Sturt and, by happenstance, more engaged in this craft than by anything else I’ve done before.
