Each day is a gift. To experience that gift to the fullest, we must make art a part of our daily living. My work is dedicated to bringing art into peoples’ lives through functional objects.
Nature has always been a great source of joy, energy, and inspiration for me. The strength, beauty, and serenity of Nature, its forces and its inhabitants influence my work.
The gentle curves, smooth transitions, and defined lines found in my work are a reflection of the Nature that nurtures me—body and spirit. Handwork, including shaping and carving, is essential to my designs, completing the connection between artist, wood, and Nature.
It is my hope that others will see these influences, sense that connection, and enjoy my work visually and tactilely.
