    Artist Statement

    The life of a tree is forever etched into the character of its grain. The process of transforming a tree into lumber reveals this history and is something I never tire of.  My best material comes from the many trees I mill myself, harvested from the yards of neighbors, friends and thoughtful strangers. I strive to manage the material in my pieces with a reverence toward its story.  My pieces are an active collaboration between the tree and myself, which is often accomplished through more impulse than planning. My designs reflect the character of my grain; influenced by the diverse cultures I have experienced while living in Asia, Europe and the United States.
