Description

“I have sought a path for creativity for as long as I can remember.  Wood is what I prefer to work with and have done so for over 40 years.  Most of my experiences comes from a career in custom home construction so transitioning from that to wood art was a smooth shift for me.  I feel a connection to the wood and the forms that can be made from it.  Seeing and feeling something take shape from a raw chunk of wood is always a thrill that I never seem to tire of.  I am drawn toward organic shapes and textures and find myself constantly experimenting with different ideas, not all a success but every one of them a learning experience.”
