Born, raised and educated in Orkney, Kevin has been working with wood ever since childhood. Growing up, he could always be found in the family garden shed making wooden items. His hobby developed into his passion when he left school in 1996 at the age of 16 to launch his much-desired career as an apprentice with a well-known local furniture maker who held a reputation for high-quality craftsmanship. Here, he continued to work and expand his skills and techniques for nine years, which eventually lead to him establishing himself as The Orkney Furniture Maker in April of 2007 with the aim of producing traditional furniture as well as his own new designs.
Kevin’s work brings together his passion for local traditional techniques and materials, combining them with innovation and design to create unique pieces with a connection to his island home. Every piece from the collection is individually created by him and his small, dedicated team. Kevin has exhibited locally, nationally and internationally and now has a world-wide customer base.
