ARTIST'S BIOGRAPHY



The love of aesthetics is part of my inherent nature with creativity branching throughout my family tree.  My mother was an artist, my father and both my grandfathers were metal-smiths, my uncle was an inventor and I made my living as a music engraver in the music industry.  I worked alongside many amazing composers from classical to film, which in some ways furthered heightened my imagination and increased my artistic sense.

These influences paved the path for my creativity today, and the inspiration for my furniture, box and jewelry designs cannot be tied to one source.  I can be inspired by looking at the way two rose branches are intertwined, the way unrelated mediums have rested precariously on each other or just the feel of a piece of unfinished wood.  Asian and African motifs often inspire me to experiment with subtle shapes, patterns and intricate designs.

Even though my main medium is exotic wood, I also use several local species that I find in my local surroundings.  Through balance and contrast, my goal is to create pieces that are not only functional, but intriguing.  I encourage the viewer to contemplate and find his or her own personal interpretation of my work.
