Meet the maker

I love making furniture. Just love it. As far back as I can remember I would have a favourite chair, or table, or wooden box. Little pudgy toddler legs trying to climb into my grandfather's wooden armchair. In fact, I may have been one of the only eleven year olds around to ask for a desk for christmas, or a wooden floor for my thirteenth birthday. 

As it turned out, it was the conjunction of visual creativity and problem solving within technical parameters that interested me - solve a problem and make it look good. 

This love of problem solving and design led to the pursuit of a degree in Industrial Design and after gaining this and a Masters degree in 3D Animation and Motion Graphics, I put the furniture on hold, working for ten years in the visual effects and design industries creating designs, animations and visuals for TV, films and advertising. 

But the physical skill that comes with making and prototyping furniture has always been my greatest interest and after recently completing training with the prestigious Williams and Cleal Furniture School, Jan Lennon Furniture was launched.
