I’m a maker of guitars and stringed musical instruments. I have a passion for creating instruments that are functional, beautiful and unique. Rejecting the ‘lore’ of conventional luthiers, I use predominantly home-grown timbers.
I use traditional luthiery construction methods throughout all my work, whilst experimenting with new shapes and sounds.
My work is inspired by folk music, vernacular crafts and other forms of traditional woodwork such a boat building. Please see examples of my work below.
