About Me

After many years working for all the major theatre and live entertainment companies as a stage manager, production manager, prop buyer and maker, set builder, and theatre technician, I started Eliza Wood Co in 2020 to work on my own designs.
I make sculptures and architectural pieces, fine furniture and lighting, using complex techniques. I also do antique furniture repairs and refinishing.
I am influenced by my experiences in the theatre design world, using texture, colour and lighting to tell a story.
