Wood is a perfect medium that gives and takes - with beauty in its perfect grain or simple defects. Some of my favorite woods include those with prominent grain patterns or those where the tree has been crushed by the forces of nature, or diseased wood that the tree is fighting to cure. These result in highly figured wood that provides amazing colors, patterns and swirls. My works are inspired by life’s simplicity, its patterns, and the beauty and form of God’s creation.
Personally, I’ve been turning for more than 30 years and my work is sold through galleries, craft events, and online. I’m currently President of the Timp Woodturners’ Association and participate as an Associate Board Member at the Utah Woodturning Symposium, and a member of the American Association of Woodturners.
