Statement

My love for working with wood began when I was nine years old visiting my uncle in England. There, I watched him build a model sailboat. When I returned home, I built a workbench in my parents' basement and started working with simple tools and scrap wood.  Over the years, my skills improved, and I began to develop my style.  I came to the realization that if my work was to improve craftsmanship, material, and function was not enough.  The work had to be about form.  I decided to earn a Fine Arts Masters in Studio Art. 

Now, many commissions later I hope my furniture conveys a sense of the person behind the art: someone who loves the creative process. Each new design is an adventure, exploring my imagination and the potential of the material. My hands-on approach allows me to let the simplicity of the design reveal itself, creating a piece that imparts serenity and calm, reflecting the tree’s grace and strength.  As the design becomes real and tangible, I get a sense of a tree evolving into a new life as a useful piece of art. I’m grateful to be the catalyst for this rebirth.
