My background is deeply rooted in the construction and renovation of buildings.

My Grandfather was a master woodcarver and furniture maker who’s company was given two Royal commissions. The first was to repair the bomb damaged St Paul’s cathedral, this included many works by the seventeenth century woodcarver Grinling Gibbons. The second commission was to make the chairs that are used by Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip while they attend Westminster Abby.

His body of works also include the external façade and clock, as well as much of the interior woodwork of Fortnum and Masons in London’s Piccadilly.

Following on in the family tradition my Father trained and practised as an Architect and my Brother as a cabinetmaker. All our bespoke kitchens and furniture are made in his workshop.
