I enjoy making custom orders. Adjusting my designs according to the customers’ wishes always gives me new ideas and ways to improve my existing models.

It’s funny how sometimes life throws the most unbelievable opportunities your way. Things you had never even dared dream of suddenly become a reality, and you just stand back and watch these amazing things happen.
