William O'Kane Studio

William O'Kane Studio

I am selft taught. Certainly with regard to my woodworking & furniture making. In my childhood I had always thought that I would grow to become a painter. Instead I ended up working in graphic design at the age of 16 and, there too, was largely self taught. I have always had a natural talent for the visual arts and for working with my hands so at the age of 22, after having decided that a life in front of a computer screen was not a life with much appeal I stumbled into woodworking. I simply wished for a place to put my books and I thought that it would be fun to have a go at making my own bookcase. That first piece is currently in the possession of one of my sisters and used daily. Not bad for a piece made of t&g flooring, drywall screws and vacant a drop of glue. Now, many years later (still with all of my digits, touch wood), I’ve achieved a degree of success in my craft and have had opportunities to make some lovely pieces for some wonderful clients.
