about

Akeel Khorzom is a retired civil engineer who spent his whole working life in engineering; however, his true passion has always been the beauty of unique art. He gets the opportunity to unleash his potential artistic energy and create unique woodworks when his landlord and friend, Jerry, allows him to use his well-equipped workshop and deal with the scrap wood collected from home teardowns. He recycled the scrap wood and created unique artworks such as amazing table lamps, spiritual wood carvings, wood-burning picture panels, and lovely handmade wood frames.

artist statement

I am a retired civil engineer. I spent my whole working life in engineering; however, my true passion has always been the beauty of unique art in all its form. I got the opportunity to unleash my potential artistic energy and create unique woodworks when my landlord and friend, Jerry, allowed me to use his well-equipped workshop and deal with the scrap wood collected from home teardowns. I recycled the scrap wood and created unique artwork such as amazing table lamps, spiritual carvings, wood-burning picture panels, and lovely handmade wood frames for my paints; I practice painting and photography as well.
