"A native of Waterford city I graduated in fine furniture making and design from Letterfrack Furniture College, Connemara, Co. Galway in 1997. Previous to 97' I served a traditional joinery apprenticeship. I set up a workshop in 98' where I produce furniture to commission and also clients can order from "The Vernacular Collection".
This collection was inspired after a study into Vernacular furniture in Ireland. Distinct features of Irish Vernacular furniture such as square leg sections, typical double stretcher rails beneath tables, drawers incorporated into most table designs and through jointing of components can be clearly seen in this unique collection of tables and cabinets.
I was awarded the Crafts Council of Ireland quality mark for craftsmanship and creativity for the past three years running and I am the only furniture maker in the South-East of Ireland to hold the quality mark.
I use native and imported hardwoods from properly managed forests to produce my furniture which is then finished in a natural oil.

Currently I have a piece on show at the National Museum of Ireland in a permanet exhibition called "Becoming Furniture Becoming"
