I am an individual luthier and I build handmade instruments to order.
Many of my designs have evolved over 30 years. It is a gradual refining process.
I started building instruments in 1982 when I was 18 years old, moving to London where I spent four years studying instrument making under master luthier Herbert Schwartz at The London College of Furniture.
I specialised in mandolins and bouzoukis and had workshops in London and Bristol before moving back to Somerset.
I have played mandolin for as long as I have made them.
