Wood turning is my medium and way of expressing the creativity within.

Time slips away from me when I’m turning wood on my lathe in my workshop. Feeling the wood in my hands emerge from a rough piece of wood into a pen, bowl, vase, or a toy for a child, sanded smooth and finished is fulfilling. I enjoy working with found wood as well as exotic woods. My handmade boxes add a display feature for my pens and pencils. My functional pieces very often are integrated with acrylic which allows me to add color to the work.
