artist statement

Raised by a carpenter, and then becoming one myself, I’ve been immersed in the natural beauty of wood for as long as I can remember. Years of cutting and shaping wood has led me to a deeper understanding of its characteristics and versatility and also piqued my interest in exploring and understanding other artistic media.
