My work is shaped by forty years of artistic and creative learning, living and working to re-create the rhythm and beauty in nature she provides for my evolving unique perspective. I canvass nature as my palette to give me the material to fire my inspiration into beautiful sophisticated one of a kind unique creations. Growing up oa a rugged south Texas ranch nurtured my independant spirit to love natural materials forming an intimacey with nature and a unique unkown spirituality. Working in my youth as a cedar chopper , deck builder, house framer and cabinet maker gave me a work ethic for Architecture school. Teaching me the value of decorative arts, special orientation and love of minalmist modern design. Working in the Architectural millwork field for over fifteen years as a Draftsman, shop foreman and project manager, tenured me an education in production techniques and finishing I still value and build upon today. For the last twenty five years I have been running my own studio drawing upon all my live experiances to create one of a kind, graceful , sophisticated limited production studio furniture along with decorative sculpture for timeless treasures as a gift to you.
