I am a .... Example: Student, Maker, Educator, etc.
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.

Glen, Thank you for the welcome.

Like your sculptural work, I mostly make chairs(keeping the wolf from the door) but just finished a desk with a little bit of carving on some wooden rocks for a leg.

Thanks for your positive comment about my vessels. I, too, love working in wood... I'm a turner. In fact, just got rid of a big gas kiln to make more room for my lathes and wood shop. I've enjoyed seeing your work, too. AM
