It's a team effort.

My partner in life is a committed woodworker. He is a lover of old hand tools and traditional techniques. He  also makes my frames. All the frame mouldings are handplaned and in keeping with my work we source Australian timbers including Red Cedar, Rosewood, Huon pine and various Hardwoods.

I like the point of difference that having handmade and therefore one off frames gives to my work. I also like the fact that we are doing our bit to keep traditional techniques and processes alive in a world where things are becoming ever increasingly disposable.
