Since I primarily produced furniture for the high-end children's market, I was able to create work in a wide range of themes. This made the design process a lot of fun, even if it made the fabrication, paint and installation a bit of a challenge from time to time...
My overriding philosophy was to keep as much "real" style and details in the pieces as possible, no matter how far they went into the realm of fantasy. In addition, I strove to put as much utility, practicality and strength into the designs as possible, to make them not only useful and safe for the child, but engaging to their creativity as well.
Furniture and Industrial design remains a passion. These images feature some of my favorites out of the 1500+ pieces created. If you are interested in licensing a design, or in a unique new piece, please use the "Contact" button above for information or to request a quote.
