I am intrigued by the expressive possibilities wood offers in creating unique objects, both functional and non-functional. In 1986, I began working with wood and immediately gained an appreciation for the beauty of different woods from all over the world. I found the unique grain patterns and colors of the different woods to be a source of inspiration. Over a number of years, I have learned the craft of creating functional objects from wood. While a formal education in engineering and science has strongly influenced the design of my pieces, I am also strongly influenced by the natural environment that surrounds us.


I now find myself working at the crossroads of design, craft and art. I often spend as much time sketching a design and selecting the wood with the best grain and color as I do actually making the piece. My current work falls into the domain of mixed media. In the creation of a particular piece of work I may use dyes, paints, glass, metal and polymer clay to enhance the beauty of the piece. In many pieces I incorporate a tactile component, along with a unique combination of form and color. All of my pieces are made using hand tools and basic power tools.
