Although my formal introduction to the art of Woodworking took place 10 years ago, I can trace my passion for creativity back to childhood. Sitting on the porch, whittling sticks with a dull pocketknife, transforming a regular ol’ branch into my own version of art. Fast-forward a few decades and the essence is basically the same: finding the utmost pleasure in attempting to take ideas, interesting images in my head and making them into real, tangible objects, and hopefully beautiful objects at that.
I don’t claim to have any specific design philosophy or influence, except that I tend to be drawn to whimsical, asymmetric, and out of the ordinary shapes and dimensions. I have come to appreciate materials that have had interesting and often unappreciated journeys: pallet wood, junkyard metal, discarded objects from everyday life. These types of materials inspire me to make them relevant again, somehow.
Through my work, I strive to constantly follow my curiosity and experiment with new materials and mediums. My ultimate goal is to create unique, thought-provoking, and well-formed pieces that will speak for themselves as time and trends come and go.
If you are interested in commissioning a piece, whether it be an existing design or yet-to-be design, I would love to work with you. Thank you.
