I love using local woods and inlaying shell, fossil, stone, brass and any other colorful material. Local woods include california sycamore, claro walnut, monterey cypress, manzanita, and madrone. I sell in several local galleries, and do about 50% of my work through custom orders.

Please see my website for more info.

I am currently selling my work at the following locations:

With a two year old at home, and a full time job, that is about all I can keep up with. I can barely keep them stocked as it is!!
