Artist Statement

I began wood carving in my parents’ Michigan basement at age eight. Performing the task with X-acto knives and great enthusiasm, I still bear the scars of my first encounter with a chunk of balsa wood. Since that time, my arsenal of tools has expanded along with my range of fantastic wood, and my love of the work has remained constant. I still explore the entire universe of woodworking, sometimes camping out on its outer borders and other times remaining close to the center, making simple, beautiful and functional furniture from local woods.
