Since I was a small child it was obvious I was a creative type. Always working on new projects and ideas with whatever was around; not letting obstacles get in my way. If there was a hurdle to jump, I would work on a creative solution.
Designing Furniture is similar. I find nothing more satisfying than working out a creative solution to an everyday problem while maintaining the beautiful lines of furniture.
I studied Industrial Design at Auburn University. There I learned the phrase "Form Follows Function" which is a principle associated with modernist architecture and industrial design in the 20th century. The principle is that the shape of a building or object should be primarily based upon its intended function or purpose. I try to stick to this methodology as much as possible when creating new work for my customers.
I love knowing that my designs are for the masses. The collections I draw and pour my heart into are in homes all across America.
