Experience & Biography

I have always loved the beauty of wood and things made of wood.  Wood has intrinsic beauty in the grain, structure, form and figure.  In my artwork, I seek to bring the intrinsic beauty of the wood to be a central element in each piece that I create.  

My primary focus is the wood lathe, and I  have been turning projects on the wood lathe for a couple of years.  I enjoy all elements of turning.  I like to find unusual pieces of wood, often spalted or oddly shaped, that are not suitable for other wood craft, but are perfectly suited for the lathe and I can bring out the internal beauty of the wood on the lathe.   I often use epoxy resin and other inlays to enhance the intrinsic beauty and thereby create a unique item that is truly one of a kind.
