I have been in the arts for about 30 years, starting in wood, then onto glass, metal and currently stone. My work has been in one museum, many art galleries, and have done work in some big name homes. Probably the most recognizable is Rush Limbaughs home. I spent 3 1/2 years there doing stone work, table tops, bathrooms, and kitchens. I like sculpting stone edges to be a little different. I did Barry Larkins ( of the Cincinatti Reds baseball team ) fireplace, by curving red travertine stone. Worked with Terry Fuquay in stonework, he is a great stone worker and artist, many thanks to him and the best guy I've worked with. I like inventing artwork and tools. Everyday is a learning experience, and would like to add blowing glass someday. I like to bring out the beauty of the material I work with, I can't match what God creates, and clean lines are my favorite style.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.
God Bless
