Making things has become more of a necessity than a simple pleasure. When I go for long periods of time without making, I feel a sense of disconnection with something that keeps me grounded and in a place where I can be the best person I can be to my family, my friends and myself. It just makes everything better. The objects that I make are reflections of things that I encounter in daily life. Patterns, textures, forms and even music that I am attracted to seem to appear in and inform my work.

About My Work:

I work mainly in wood that I shape on a wood lathe. My work is both decorative and functional. I make items such as bowls, platters, vases and lidded containers. After they are turned on the lathe I then embellish them with a variety of tools such as a woodburner, carving tools, acrylic mediums, wire etc.

Pricing Information:

$75-$1200

Education:

I have been a maker all of my life and have been making things with the help of a wood lathe for 12 years. I have studied at several craft schools in week long workshops and now teach all over the country at these same schools and at symposiums and seminars.

Affiliations:

Current member of the American Association of Woodturners.
