Throughout my career as a wood artist, my primary focus has been to create objects that go beyond the traditional look of furniture: to create a functional piece of sculpture out of wood. I am excited and challenged by finding new ways of enhancing my finished designs with the inherent beauty of wood.
My initial designs adopted a purely organic approach to furniture design. In the late 1980's I began highlighting the natural edges of the wood or tree in my designs. I was intrigued with taking a natural edged board, or scrap from a local firewood pile, and designing an entire object around it. The use of this natural edge began to impact many of my designs.
Since 1987, I have concentrated my conceptual interests in two directions: designing work around a natural edged piece of wood and creating several bodies of themed pieces. The themed series include the "Double Image Series" (wall hung cabinets featuring bookmatched woods), the "Entry Way Series" (hallway furnishings), the "Teapot Collection" (40 different shapes), and the "Sculptchair Series" (16 chair designs). My current projects are a series of square-formatted wall-hung sculptures and"Tribal Dreams", a group of primitive-themed sculptures.
My work is both organic and geometric: my ultimate goal has always been to create a unique, beautiful object.

Custom designs start with a consultation about the woods desired and the size of the piece. Drawings are $100.00 per design which is non-refundable and is applied to the price of the finished work. A deposit of 50% is due to start the piece with the balance due before delivery. Shipping and crating are extra.
