My name is Rowan Eduard Dicks.
My passion in life is designing and making artistic furniture.
I followed my childhood hobby through college and into university, where I completed a two year diploma in fine furniture design and making(level 5), and one year of post-grad studies, specialising in business management and artistic design. i have been working in a furniture and joinery workshop for a company called Avant Garde. In the last five years working there I have completed my national certificate/apprenticeship in furniture making (level four). now i am working at UCOL (Universal College of Learning) as a lecturer in the trades and technology department.
Along the way I have entered many competitions and festivals, delt through many galleries and been awarded top three in 2008 and 2010 for the FITEC national trainee of the year awards, also first place in the Kawarau Woodfest festival.
My passion continues, as I will never stop designing and making.
One day the world will know my furniture.
