"Necessity, fate, autobiography and subversion are the key influences upon my practice.
I use materials that are provided as a product of continuous waste driven by mass consumption and fashion.
There are enough mass produced chairs in this world: I collect discarded and unwanted ones from the street, car boot sales, jumble sales, second hand shops and charity shops. I then make 'new' chairs with these chairs. They are naively constructed intentionally to recapture the adventure of childhood."
