Meet the Artist

Long wishing to get back to my Native American roots, I evolved from many forms of art to find my soul in the heart of wood. Not wanting to compromise Nature's raw beauty, I work almost exclusively with hand tools and carefully craft each piece to best highlight the art of the grain. Using techniques fashioned over decades by exacting craftspeople, I add my own touch to create serene pieces of functional art using exotic hardwoods. My goal is to deepen my understanding of wood and create purposeful pieces that bring the beauty of wood into the lives of others.
